NEW YORK – Police in New York City say a man spotted by officers ripping down wanted posters of himself had been accused of masturbating on a subway train.
The photo of Kosta Kolaci (KOH'-stah koh-LAH'-cheeh) that's on the posters was taken this month by a rider who was in the same subway car. The rider handed over his photos to police, who made the posters.
The 61-year-old suspect was arrested Friday when officers saw him in a Brooklyn station, tearing down the posters.
He's charged with public lewdness. A phone number couldn't be found for Kolaci.
This story has been corrected to show the station where the suspect was arrested is in Brooklyn, not Manhattan.
