Williamsburg - Accused subway sexual assaulter arrested
A man suspected of groping a woman in a Brooklyn subway station was collared after a group of straphangers pulled him from the train Friday night, police said.
A cellphone video posted on YouTube shows the heroic bystanders pulling Victor Sigler, 30, out of a Manhattan-bound L train moments after the attack at the Lorimer St. station in Williamsburg about 9:45 p.m.
Sigler, of the Bronx, allegedly grabbed a 35-year-old woman at her waist and groped her buttocks as she left a Queens-bound G train in the same station, cops said.
The woman chased the creep to the L train, where a pair of good Samaritans dragged him off the train as she explained what happened.
The straphangers held Sigler on the ground until transit cops arrived. The video shows a crowd of bystanders applauding as cops slap cuffs on Sigler’s wrists.
