NYC subway justice
From the NY Post:
It was the last stop for this subway creep.
An alleged subway groper was cuffed yesterday after fellow straphangers dragged him off an L train in Brooklyn and held him for cops, police said.
Victor Sigler, 30, of The Bronx, was arrested on a charge of forcible touching for allegedly grabbing a 35-year-old victim around the waist and feeling her buttocks as she got off a Queens-bound G train at the Lorimer Street subway stop at around 9:30 p.m., police said.
Sigler then allegedly ran and tried to board a Manhattan-bound L train — with his victim in hot pursuit — but was dragged out of the car and held on the platform by a pair of good Samaritans, in an act of street justice captured on video and posted to YouTube today.
As one of the straphanger heroes held Sigler on the platform, bystanders applauded as transit cops arrived and made the arrest.
The woman was not harmed.
