Report It

I was molested on the W train between Lexington/59th St. and Queensboro Plaza. I wasn’t able to collect my senses and get off to report the crime or report it immediately after, but I reported it to the NYC sex crimes hot line 2 days later and was able to go to the precinct and actually identify the perpetrator out of a mugshot.

Turns out he was arrested once before, three years ago, for a sex crime. I encourage women to report the crimes, no matter how small you may think they are, because you could be helping someone three or ten years from now to gain closure and press charges for another crime. A crime that could be worse than yours.

    You are very brave! Your experience also points out the importance of reporting the incident even if it is a few days after the occurrence—something can still happen to apprehend the offender!! Thank you for posting this.
