Nothing like witnessing public masturbation and being threatened with a knife to ruin your evening commute. The NYPD is currently hunting for a man who brandished a knife after she asked him to stop masturbating on a Bronx bus. Law enforcement says the incident occurred around 5:45 p.m. on Jul. 9 when the 27-year-oldwho was traveling on the bus with her childrenallegedly saw the man masturbating and asked him to stop. 

After she informed the bus driver, the suspect reportedly pulled out a knife on her, forcing the woman to "[grab] the male’s hand to defend herself." She was not injured, and the man darted from the bus. Police ask that anyone with information about this man contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, their website or by texting "TIP577" to  274637.
