Cops Arrest MTA Employee

Cops have arrested a 63 year old MTA employee due to sexually harassing a 19 year old female subway rider. Rocco Parascandola & Thomas Tracy of the New York Daily News have more in this report:

Cops arrested an MTA employee they say sexually abused a 19-year-old woman twice while working at a Brooklyn subway station, officials said Friday.

Cops said on Wednesday 63-year-old Mohammad Talukder groped the woman, who is an Orthodox Jew, at the 18th Ave. F train stop in Borough Park.

His victim claimed that every time she passed through the station on her way home from work, Talukder would harass her — offering her gifts, cigarettes and money to go on a date with him.

After being repeatedly rebuffed, Talukder allegedly grabbed the woman when she exited the train about 7:30 p.m. April 18 and forced her to a section of the platform under construction. Once he had her alone, he lifted up her shirt and molested her, according to cops.

The woman later told cops she didn’t use the station for a week after that but returned on Wednesday. Once again Talukder grabbed her, this time groping her and kissing her neck, according to police.

The woman ran home and told her boyfriend, who called police.

Responding officers found Talukder still in the station and arrested him for sex abuse.

I am glad that this disgusting pervert was arrested as it is never okay to sexually abuse anyone. I would like to believe that he will never work for the MTA again after this either. How stupid could he be to lose a good paying job over being a complete pervert.

Lastly I am not going to lie, when I read about the boyfriend calling the cops when told about the incident, my first thought was why in the world did he not go down there & confront this man? No way I would not have gone down there & dealt with him personally if it happened to my girlfriend.
