Public transit can be a wild ride sometimes, with all sorts of unwelcomed detritus. As Muni Diaries reports, almost a year after everyone’s favorite N-Judah Humper, another alleged sexual assailant is riding our Munis and creeping us out.
Though the suspect has simply been described as a “creep”, I’m a big fan of alliteration and have thus dubbed him the “T-Third Toucher.” The 6 ft. plus man always sits in the two-person seats of the T, preying on young women, MD contributor Mel says.
He’ll pretend to reach for something in his pocket, she says, then hold his arm’s position so that his hand is touching the victim’s thigh or buttock for far longer than it takes to rustle through his pockets, though that’s what he claims as his defense.
Mel, who says she was a victim of the T-Third Toucher, says “I’ve caught him on two other occasions, and have called him out on it” bus says that “I’m not sure how I can really prevent this from happening to other women.”
Mel, we think going public with your experience was a great place to start.
Have you seen or been assaulted by the T-Third Toucher? If so, please do let us know, and be careful out there.
