At approximately 10 a.m., a woman sitting on one of the trains noticed a man looming uncomfortably close to her.

When she looked toward him, she noticed his erect penis and testicles exposed over the waistline of his sweatpants, only a foot away from her face, police said.

The passenger snuck a photo, which she later provided to police.

Security video revealed the man had first boarded a train at the Commercial-Broadway station and then spent nearly an hour riding trains between the Main Street and Edmonds stations.

He finally left SkyTrain at the Joyce station.

The suspect is described as a darker skinned man, between 25 and 30 years old, five-foot-nine and about 160 pounds. He has brown hair, a patchy goatee and brown eyes.

At the time of the incident, he was seen wearing glasses, a black hoodie, black sweat pants with a white drawstring, white headphones and carrying a black-and-grey backpack.

“Transit Police are very concerned by the actions of this suspect,” states the release.
