NEW YORK (PIX11)—This video taken on the 4 train over the weekend is nothing short of shocking and horrifying. A groping creep is seen sexually assaulting a woman while she was asleep sometime around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday morning while video was taken by another passenger, Jasheem Smiley.
There were 10 other people on the train with me but I was the only one who took charge,” Smiley told PIX News. “I went to the conductor and I notified them that someone was getting sexually assaulted.”
but smiley himself has gotten a lot of slack for not doing something more than just taking video of the awful act.
“They weren’t there in my shoes to witness what was going on, and it’s 3:30 in the morning. I’m not sure what this guy is capable of, he could have had a gun, he could have had a knife,” Smiley said. “I need to protect myself in order to help her; the MTA always says ‘when you see something, say something,’ and I did.”
Smiley says the man got on the subway at 96th street, but by the time Smiley notified the conductor and an NYPD officer the man had already left the train somewhere around 23rd or 14th street.
“This guy is out there just running around, I don’t know who else he did this to.”
