A 27-year-old woman riding a Bronx bus was threatened by a man with a knife after she observed him masturbating and told him to stop, police said.

The victim was aboard a BX2 bus with her children about 5:45 p.m. on July 9 when she saw the suspect masturbating. The woman told the man to stop and alerted the bus driver. The suspect then approached the woman and displayed a knife, police said.

The two got into a struggle and the victim grabbed the man's hand to defend herself. The suspect fled the bus when it came to a stop at East 171st Street and Grand Concourse.

No injuries were reported. Police released photos of the suspect this week.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
