Escalator Grabber

As I was walking toward the escalator, a man grabbed my arm and pulled me toward him, saying “hey baby” or something like that. I wrenched my arm free and, confused, turned to look at him, and he winked and made a kissy face. Since this was right after a friend noticed that the men next to us were looking at porn (Yellow line), I was very creeped out!
