SFPD arrests suspect in new ‘Muni humper’ case
Less than 24 hours after we reported the case of a man who was sexually assaulting women on Muni by rubbing himself against them, the police made an arrest in the case. There were at least four victims in the case, and one of them had commented with her own horrifying account in our original post yesterday.
The San Francisco Examiner reported yesterday that “additional police officers were directed to ride the N-Judah between downtown stations and the avenues.”
SFBay’s Jerold Chinn saw police officers riding on the N yesterday afternoon and tweeted the photo above.
According to SFPD spokesperson Grace Gatpandan, an office from the Taraval Station met with one of the victims yesterday and disseminated the photo of the suspect to Muni Division officers.
More from the SFPD:
Richmond Station officers were able to identify the suspect. Park Station officers located the suspect at Carl and Stanyan Streets and took him into custody without incident. The suspect, a 45 year old white male, is being charged with multiple misdemeanors including sexual battery, sexual battery on public transportation, continuing offense of public nuisance and one felony count of false imprisonment.
The police has not released the name and photo of the suspect, and asks that anyone with more information about the case call the SFPD Anonymous Tip Line at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
