Victim 1 Subway Pervert 0

So here we have a typical subway pervert spreading himself around to another unfortunate victim. However this time the tables were turned on him. Here is the story courtesy of the NY Post:


August 22, 2007 — A Brooklyn woman who was stalked and molested by an aggressive subway flasher went from victim to vanquisher with the snap of a cellphone camera, police sources said yesterday.

The woman – who’d been harassed by the brazen exhibitionist on the B and Q trains – managed to get a picture of her attacker that could help send him to jail.

Based on that photo, Jay Arungah, 24, was arrested for menacing, stalking, sex abuse and public lewdness, officials said.

“I was really shocked,” said the Sheepshead Bay victim, whose name is being withheld by The Post. “I just couldn’t believe this was really happening.”

The 30-year-old woman’s ordeal began Monday at about 8 p.m. as she was waiting at the Avenue M station.

She said she immedi ately became frightened when she noticed a strange man staring at her.

When they boarded the train, Arungah lit a ciga rette – and then exposed himself to her, she said.

She said she tried to change seats, but he followed her, still exposing himself.

“You could tell by his face he was just really creepy,” she said.

When the train pulled into the Kings Highway station, the woman tried to escape, but Arungah crept behind her and pressed himself against her, police said.

She tried to get a fellow rider to help her by yelling, “Mister! Mister!”

But the straphanger just looked up, saw the fracas and promptly stuck his nose back in his book.

When the doors finally opened, she rushed onto the B train, only to be followed by Arungah – still exposing himself, police said.

That’s when she snapped Arungah – in all his naked glory, the woman said.

“I was nervous, but I guess I wasn’t too nervous,” she recalled.

She disembarked at the Sheepshead Bay station – and so did her attacker.

She then called 911 and was told cops were on their way.

When police arrived, she pointed out her alleged attacker, and they nabbed him.

Arungah was held in lieu of $2,000 bond after his arraignment last night in Brooklyn Criminal Court, where he wore a bright-pink polo shirt and had to be taken out of the courtroom once for failing to pay attention.

The sad part is I’m sure this guy will be on the subways exposing himself within 6 months. For some reason crimes like these never equal long jail sentences.
