Last week at 3:30pm in the Lorimer/Metropolitan station my daughters (12 and 14 years old) were on their way home from school. They told me that a man (stranger) came very close to them, snuck up on them then started asking lots of questions. “are you on the way home from school?” And warning them to “Be careful talking to strangers”. And how there might be “sexual predators” around. All the while they said he was standing much too close and staring especially at my younger daughter, and saying to be careful that someone in a van might get her.
He scared the kids (and me, when I heard the story once they were home). They managed to move
In the subway car when it came, to avoid him, and when he got out at the same stop as them at Greenpoint Ave, they took the long way home and did not use the India Street exit to avoid him crossing his path again or him seeing where they got off or live.
I made a police report. The policeman at the 94th precinct said since nothing happened it could only be for harassment. He then tried to tell me not to worry –“nothing can happen in the subway anyway”- I was incredulous (ridiculous thing to tell me..). I’m angry.
There are a lot of sex offenders in North Greenpoint. This person should *never* have approached my daughters in this way, no matter his status.
His description: male, white or Hispanic, 5’9″ or so, buzz cut gray hair, 50-60 years old, uses a cane.
I was just another teenager getting on the train going home. When I got on the crowded 4 train I saw a woman in her late 20s or early 30s looking right at me. While I left stepped past her she put her big buttocks in my groin. I had to put my hand on her buttocks for her to get off me. I stared at this woman to the next stop and she got off. That is right a female pedophile targeted a 16 year old boy!
I got off the BX15 bus to walk down to the Metro North platform. As I was crossing the street a guy that I passed said “excuse me miss can I talk to you” but I didn’t even acknowledge him, I know not to even flinch when bothered. I kept walking but I kept hearing him ask the question behind me and when I got near the steps to the platform I looked back and saw him following me. I firmly replied “NO” and kept going but he kept following me. I ran down the stairs onto the platform and kept running, he eventually gave up. I’ve had losers follow me but never all the way down to the platform!
First let me start by saying I am a 13 year old bisexual female whom encounters sexual harassment everyday; whether is on my way to school, in school or even online.There are SOOO many incidents but I will write just three. So the first instance was last year around 3 pm when my mom and I were walking to a restaurant (for my birthday) further down on Wilshire and a random guy pops up out of nowhere asking us did we want to buy some incense. My mom and I declined but he continued to follow us so my mom stopped walking and pretended to be on her phone. THE GUY STOOD IN FRONT OF US!!! I was so scared and pissed. my mom asked him why was he stalking us and he reply was “Mamacita I wanna F**k you and baby gurl”in thickly accented english. IF LOOK COULD KILL I WOULD HAVE HAD HIM DEAD!!!! My mom then told him to go away and leave us alone. long story short I was so mad I told him we would call the immigration police if he continued to stalk us, then he literally RAN AWAY thank god. The second instance was 6 months ago online on a virtual reality chat site called IMVU. So I was in a chat room with my friends and this guy joined the chat room. No biggie, me and my friends kept on chatting until he proceeded to invite us to a make-out room (for those of you who don’t use IMVU a make-out room is a chat room with sexual poses, actions, and gestures). we freaked out and started telling him to go away and to stop bothering us, then he invited his friends to bash us in that chat room I was called a homo, tranny, freak, confused bitch, faggot, HIV magnet, half breed, thot, whore and a n****r. This continued until the room owner came in and booted (banned) them from that chat room. The third instance happened on the train about 2 months with my best friend so we were on red line going to our old schoolmates gathering. We got on the train at Beverly and Vermont, there was only one seat and my friend took it so i stood up. Around Hollywood and Vine I could feel someone groping me from behind I felt paralyzed, dirty, and violated. then the person began to rub my bust area!! I WAS NO LONGER FROZEN I TURNED AROUND AND SCREAMED FOR HIM TO NOT TOUCH ME AND I CALLED HIM A PERVERT! his face turned red as he ducked off the train. by the time we had made it to our destination my saturday was RUINED. now i found this site i now know that i’m not alone and that girls my age all over the world are enduring what I am forced to endure daily just because iI am a female.ITS NOT FAIR !! WHY DO BOYS AND MEN GET TO GO OUTSIDE AND BE SAFE AND TEASE AND ASSAULT ME WHEN ALL I WANT TO DO IS LIVE MY OWN LIFE AND MIND MY OWN BUSINESS!! IM SICK AND TIRED OF WAKING UP IN THE MORNING GOING OUTSIDE BEING HARASSED BEFORE I EVEN GET TO THE CORNER!!!!!!
I was standing outside of my friends’ car waiting for him to give me coins to put in the meter. I was leaning against the window, and a relatively large group (about 7 or 8) guys walk by. There was not a single one who didn’t holler at me. Some said “Damn baby!” While others made kissy noises or whistled. My friend was disgusted. He wanted to do something about it. The saddest part was, I told him to let it go, that it didn’t matter, because it happens all the time.
Harassed by six separate men in the space of 150 feet at the Hoboken main terminal. The first two called me “sexy” and then talked loudly to each other about “orgasming” on my shoes. The next four just randomly hollered things at me. A cop was in earshot but he didn’t do anything.
I was walking down the street around 3AM on a Saturday night/Sunday morning and saw a group of three people approaching me in the opposite direction. I was wearing a leather jacket and a scarf over a mid length black dress and tights, and happened to be binding that evening as well. There was a tight traffic spot coming up on the sidewalk that required everyone to move around one another.
One of the men in the group slid his hand UNDERNEATH my scarf and over one side of my chest, seemingly trying to squeeze or grope at me. In hindsight the fact that my chest was completely compressed is a point relief despite the fact that I was still violated. As he passed and pulled his arm away he held onto my scarf for a moment, pulling at me. I stopped, totally shocked at what just happened and attempted to confront him. This was met with a fake apology and he quickly tried to tell me it was all a misconstrued accident. I was too shocked and oddly momentarily torn as to whether or not he was being genuine (this was a 10 second time frame) to say much more than a basic “what the fuck”. After this apology he began attempting to drunkenly flirt with the person he had just sexually assaulted while his friends walked on. I responded coldly and continued walking.
This shit is unacceptable, and I should have said more or reported it.
I’m a tiny Asian woman so I get racial and sexual comments all the time. Either “konichiwa” or “me so horny” or other super degrading bs like that. I was walking around 2pm in Bed Stuy and this guy mumbles as he walks by “I like chinas.” I stopped walking and dead panned stared at him. After telling him to F off I told him I was not Chinese and he got defensive of course. This was the second time I got racially cat called within a week. The last time some kid on a bike said “what you be? Chinese, Japanese..” I was tired and after telling him to F off he got super defensive and called me a midget. Then when I questioned him and said “well you were hitting on me” he said “ya because I want to fuck you in the behind.”
Just a casual encounter with ignorant people of NY.
