Police in San Francisco on Friday asked for the public’s help locating Muni passengers that may have been victims of sexual harassment or assault while using the city’s transit system. Police reported that on the morning of May 8, a man was witnessed rubbing his pelvis against a woman on the inbound N-Judah rail line. The same suspect was witnessed committing a similar assault on the outbound N-Judah line later that evening. The victim has not been located. The witness who reported the incidents to police said the suspect exited the train at the Powell Street station. Police believe the suspect has been committing similar sexual batteries that have not been reported, and are asking anyone who has been a victim of such a crime to contact the San Francisco Police Department as soon as possible at (415) 553-1651. The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his early 20s, around 6 feet tall and weighing around 250 pounds. He was last seen with a moustache, goatee and his hair in cornrows, and wearing a black jacket, jeans and earrings in both ears.
