An off-duty bus driver was arrested after rubbing against a woman on a subway train in Manhattan Thursday morning, officials said.

 

David Grant, 46, was charged with forcible touching and sexual abuse after being arrested around 9:30 a.m. near Union Square station, police said.

 

A police officer saw Grant inappropriately press his body against a 36-year-old woman on a 4 train, according to the NYPD.

 

Grant works out of the Manhattanville Depot and has been employed by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority since July 2012, according to spokesman Kevin Ortiz.

 

He has been suspended and "appropriate disciplinary action will be taken pending the outcome of his case," according to Ortiz.
