JAMAICA, Queens (PIX11) — Cops are searching for a man caught on video masturbating in a car and then following two sisters on a busy Queens street Thursday.
The women sent the video to PIX11 News showing the driver masturbating while parked near a bus stop on 120th Avenue in Jamaica about 5 p.m.
The video shows the man, whose face was partially covered, touching himself inside his car. Children, including a mother and her daughter, also were walking by.
The women, who wish to remain anonymous in case the man lives in the neighborhood, say they were jogging down the street when they noticed the man parked next to the bus stop, with his foot on his dashboard and his passenger-side window down.
When they got closer, they realized he was pantless and masturbating.
“It seems like he was trying to get our attention because he was looking right at us, smiling,” the woman said.
After the sisters passed him, the man made a U-turn and continued to follow them.
He parked at another bus stop and continued his act.
“He didn’t have a license plate in the front [of the car] and the back one was covered by a black rag,” one of the woman told PIX11.
“I think it’s a car with out-of-town plates, because there was only a plate in the back, not in the front,” she added.
They are afraid that this man is a predator who could hurt someone, as he was parked at a bus stop where children returning from school are dropped off.
“My daughter and niece take that route to go to school everyday,” she said.
The sisters describes the car as mostly green with brown trim, and said it is most probably a Subaru.
The sisters describe the man as thin, with fair skin and between 35- and 45-years-old.
