July 4, 2007 — A drifter was busted after sweeping a 21-year-old woman who had passed out drunk off the subway and carrying her to a SoHo vestibule where he sexually assaulted her, police said yesterday.
Jasiri Walloe, 32, was arrested early Friday after the brazen assault, cops said.
Walloe found the victim passed out on a bench at 5 a.m. at the Brooklyn Bridge station, police said. He allegedly began kissing and fondling the intoxicated woman.
When a No. 6 train pulled in, Walloe scooped her up and carried her aboard. Walloe took her off the train at Spring Street, cops said.
Another rider grew suspicious and followed the two off the train. Walloe took the woman into a vestibule at 214 Mulberry St. where he removed her shorts and underwear, police said. He then fondled and molested her, waking her up, police said. Walloe allegedly began to bolt, but was caught a short distance away by police who had been called by the witness.
He is charged with kidnapping and sexual abuse.
What has happened to this country when you can’t even pass out in a train station at 5am & not be assaulted!
