NYPD: Man Exposes Self To 21-Year-Old Woman And Her 6-Month-Old Daughter On D Train

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Police are looking for man who they said exposed himself to a young mother and her 6-month-old daughter on a Manhattan subway train.

The incident occurred Friday on a northbound D train near 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue.

The 21-year-old woman took her daughter and tried to get away from the man after he exposed himself, police said. The woman and her daughter moved to a different spot on the train, but police said the suspect followed them. He tried to look up the woman's skirt while making several comments about how beautiful the child was and kept asking for the little girl's name, police said. The woman was able to take a picture of the suspect before getting off the train.

Police said they are also looking for another man in connection with a separate incident that occurred on the subway on Sept. 10. In that case, a 34-year-old woman took a picture of a man "performing a lewd act" on a northbound No. 1 train near Seventh Avenue and West 42nd Street, police said.
