“A Man Exposed Himself On the Blue Line”

posted in: Blue Line | 1

A self-declared homeless man entered our metro car as the train was leaving Smithsonian. During the ride between Smithsonian and L’enfant, the man declared that he would do anything for money, including prostitute himself (he used more profane language). He proceeded to unbutton his pants and pulled his jeans and boxer shorts all the way down, exposing himself while standing in the center of the aisle.

    Oh how awful, and I’m so sorry you had to experience that. Please be sure that you also report this to WMATA Transit Police as well if you haven’t already- they’re making a big effort to collect as much of this information as they can so that they can identify patterns and follow up to make arrests, where possible. You can report it by e-mail to harassment@wmata.com or by their web form which is at http://www.wmata.com/about_metro/transit_police/harassment.cfm

    They need to hear about stories like yours.
