Isvett Verde, a 28-year-old NYU student, boarded a “very crowded” Manhattan-bound E train last week at 23 Street/Ely Avenue when she felt “a rather strange sensation” in her “nether regions.”
“Someone was grabbing a hold of my crotch and holding on for dear life,” she said.
She snapped a picture of the man — the same man she believes fondled her on the E train two years ago — and showed the picture to a cop when she got out at West 4th Street. The officer expressed little interest, so she later called 311 (as advised by her boss who saw her crying about the incident) and two other officers were dispatched to her office. They suggested she get mace and a gun — “perhaps sarcastically” — but took no statement on the incident, Verde said.
Woman hollas at E perv
Statistics seem to indicate that crime is down. Probably because the police are refusing to take reports.
