A man was detained for five days after being caught taking photos up a woman’s skirt on a Metro escalator, joining the likes of local pervy commuters before him including Shanghai Metro’s notorious bra unhooker and the fellow who ejaculated on a woman’s tights on Line 6 during morning rush hour.
According to Shanghai Daily, the 23-year-old man surnamed Wu was snapping photos looking up a woman’s skirt on an escalator at the entrance of Line 9 Guilin Road Station last Friday morning. The woman caught him as he was taking photos and called police to have him detained.
Possibly one of the more creepy episodes of commuter sexual harassment occurred in Beijing when a man was photographed hiding below a subway seat and fondling women’s legs.
Both Shanghai and Beijing metro authorities have wrongheadedly asked female passengers to “cover up” while traveling on subways and buses to avoid instances of harassment, perpetrators of which can be fined and detained for a maximum of 15 days.
