On Nov. 17, a 24-year-old woman was on a moving northbound ‘4’ train when an unknown individual sat next to her, according to police.

According to police, the suspect touched the woman and attempted to pull her skirt down. Then the police also said that the woman attempted to flee to another train car for safety.

The suspect exited the subway at Bowling Green and boarded a ferry to Staten Island. It was unclear whether Tapia had retained an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
