“I just felt so violated…”
Riding the University-Spadina subway line Northbound, I noticed an older man was stroking himself (he was wearing loose, threadbare sweat shorts with a small leather bag half covering his junk) while making direct eye contact with myself and another subway rider. I promptly moved seats and got off a station early, though I regret not pushing the emergency button when I had noticed. I just felt so violated, especially underground with no cell service and nowhere to go and wanted to escape the environment. Perhaps nobody noticed, but nobody said or did anything.
Race: Indian or Sri Lankan
Outfit: Black thread-bare baseball cap, black sweat shorts that had holes and were frayed at the edges, grey polo shirt and black sandals.
I believe he exited at Queen’s Park.
Location: University-Spadina Subway line
