CANARSIE, Brooklyn — The NYPD on Tuesday released a photo of a man accused of exposing himself and masturbating on a subway in Brooklyn.

Police said it happened around 6:40 a.m. aboard a Canarsie-bound L train near the East 105th Street station.

The unidentified man exposed his penis to a 24-year-old woman on the same train car and then began masturbating, authorities said.

The victim and the man both got off the train at the East 105th Street station, according to police.

The woman fled to the mezzanine for safety, while the man fled the station to parts unknown, officials said.
