PHOTO: NYPD seeks alleged Brooklyn subway stalker


The NYPD is looking for a suspected subway stalker in Brooklyn who had his picture taken by his alleged victim.

Last Wednesday morning, a 15-year-old girl on the southbound platform of the Atlantic Avenue station noticed the suspect staring at her and following her, the NYPD reported in a statement. The suspect then approached her, grabbing her arm and telling her to come with him. The victim refused, and the man fled.
