FOREST HILLS, Queens — Police said Tuesday they were on the hunt for a man accused of urinating on a woman while riding a subway through Queens over the weekend.

According to the NYPD, it happened around 1:30 p.m. Saturday when the man first exposed himself to a Hispanic woman on the northbound platform of the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue station along the R line in Forest Hills.

After boarding a northbound F train, the man began urinating beside an Asian woman seated aboard the same car, police said

When the woman, 25, scooted away from the man, he turned toward her and splashed her coat and handbag with urine, authorities said.

The man then fled the train two stations later at the 75th Avenue station, according to police.

The NYPD’s Special Victims Squad released the above surveillance images of the man they’re looking for.
