A 64-year-old man has been arrested after repeatedly pressing himself against a woman and teenage girl on the 7 train.
Mohamed H. Mohamed of East Elmhurst was spotted Wednesday around 4:30 p.m. by two plain-clothes police officers on a Queens-bound train as he turned back and forth between the two victims.
Mohamed first pressed himself against a 36-year-old woman, according to the NYPD. Then, as the train entered the 52nd Street station, he turned to a 15-year-old girl and repeatedly pressed his body against her backside.
When the teenager stepped way from him, Mohamed turned back to the 36-year-old woman and pressed himself against her, police said. She then stepped away, and he again turned toward the 15 year old.
At this time, as the train entered the 74th Street station, officer Gregory Perpall identified himself and removed Mohamed from the train. Perpall was patrolling the train with officer Jaipaul Ramdat.
Mohamed was charged with two counts of forcible touching, two counts of sex abuse, two counts of harassment and one count of reckless endangerment of a child.
