Hunt on for subway flasher

- The NYPD is searching for a man who has exposed himself several times on the R train since August.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect walking through a turnstile.  He is described as white with a light complexion and about 180 lbs. with brown hair. He was last seen wearing a long camouflage shirt and white sneakers, no pants.

In the first incident on August 16 at about 9:40 a.m., a 32-year-old woman told police she was on a northbound R train when she saw the suspect who was sitting nearby expose his groin area. The woman got off the train while the suspect remained.

Later that afternoon, a 29-year-old woman was aboard a southbound R train when she said the man exposed his groin.

On September 5 at about 2:30 p.m., the man lifted up his shirt and exposed his groin to a 40-year-old woman aboard a southbound R train. This time, the suspect got off the train at the same time as the woman at the Murray Street and Broadway station.

Anyone with information about the incidents is encouraged to contact the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

You can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
