Steven Esposito, a retired NYPD detective, allegedly flashed a woman and masturbated on a New York subway platform this past Monday, and reportedly pulled a gun on a man trying to take his photo. Esposito was arraigned on Wednesday on charges of public lewdness and menacing and later released without bail.

After releasing video of a man accused of “manipulating his penis outside of his pants” and threatening a good Samaritan with a gun, the police made an arrest. And it turns out the suspect is a retired police officer.

According to the NYPD, just before midnight on Monday, a 38-year-old woman on the southbound platform of the Fifth Avenue N/R station “heard a hissing noise beside her. When she looked to see what the noise was, she observed the suspect manipulating his penis outside of his pants.”

The pervert started to leave and the woman began to cry, prompting another man, 41, on the platform to ask what was wrong. After she explained, the man decided to follow the masturbator and film him.

The New York Daily News adds that Esposito, 56 and a Staten Island resident, is due back in court on Dec. 1.
