Apparently this Man Didn't Read the Anti-harassment Subway Ads

I've run into a perv going between Long Island City and Manhattan on the subway. He gets on the N or W train at Lex headed for LIC, and then gets off at LIC and takes the 7 train back. I think he rides any time of the day (nothing better to do?). The first time was over the summer around lunch time. He sat down next to me and was digging his arm into my side like he was enjoying it. I'd move and then he would still move his arm back. I wasn't sure if it was my imagination, so didn't report him. The second time was this morning at rush hour. He got on the train at Lex and remained standing. He tried to casually put his leg against me. I looked up and thought it was the same guy from the summer. I just got up as soon as we were near LIC. He followed me and started saying "cunnilingus" - never making eye contact. I yelled out to him, "You are absolutely disgusting!" Also, I reported him to the MTA. Seems like I am not the first to report this freak... The MTA employee, when I first started describing what happened, nodded his head and said "black jacket?" Hope they do something about him. I'm kind of freaked out... but mostly pissed off.
