They found marijuana on him and then noticed he resembled a police sketch of one of the sex attack suspects from a May 7th attack.
On May 7th, a man stole a 37-year-old woman’s MetroCard at the 8th Avenue entrance of the 7th Avenue and 9th Street station on the F line, according to WPIX. The man the grabbed the woman’s breasts, exposed himself and masturbated.
