The NYPD has released a photo of a man who fondled himself in front of a woman on the subway last Friday.

The 33-year-old woman took a photo of the masturbating creep at about 8:55 p.m. on January 26, 2018, inside a northbound No. 1 train near Chambers Street, the NYPD said. When the man realized she had taken a picture, he stopped and then exited at Franklin Street.

Police described the guy as 28 to 38, 5 feet 8 inches, last seen wearing a blue knit cap, a blue hooded sweater, a black jacket, gray pants, and blue and white sneakers.
