MTA Employee Arrested for Assault on Jewish Girl

by Sandy Eller – VIN News:

An MTA station agent is under arrest after being accused of sexually abusing a 19-year-old Orthodox Jewish woman at the 18th Avenue subway station in Borough Park.

Police said that 63 year old Mohammad Talukder had reportedly harassed the young woman on several occasions when she came into the station, repeatedly trying to get her to talk to him and to date him.

According to police, Talukder pulled his victim into an isolated construction zone on the northbound side of the mezzanine area of the station on the evening of April 18th, and assaulted her.

After fighting off the attack the victim fled the station, but Talukder allegedly approached her again on Wednesday evening as she left the station at 7:30 PM, assaulting her again and kissing her on the neck.

The young woman reported the two incidents to police on Thursday and Talukder was arrested with sex abuse and forcible touching.  Police said that Talukder, a Flatbush resident, has no history of prior arrests.

The MTA did not immediately return a call for comment on the matter.

      Generalizations are understood to have exceptions; this doesn’t invalidate them.

      The current fad for denouncing all generalization is literally insane. Our survival depends on our ability to generalize intelligently, which is called da’as, and is a gift from Hashem. Everyone does it, and it is crazy to be ashamed of it or to consider it somehow immoral.

    Creep harassed her several times, assaulted her on the 18, and again​ on Wednesday evening and she only reported it on Thursday?
    Girls, you MUST report immediately. And if there are repeated incidents at a particular place, please don’t keep going there. It’s just a few blocks to the next station. Or call the local shmira to meet you there. You life is too precious to ignore stalking.

      A phobia is an irrational fear. Fear of Islam, like fear of nazism, communism, unstable explosives, or venomous snakes, is not a phobia.
