The ceiling in a Shanghai metro station collapsed due to high humidity a couple of weeks ago, but it looks like the dangers there go beyond shoddy workmanship. When you are pretending not to notice fellow commuters defecating on the train, also keep a watch out for pervs.
A woman surnamed Mo was waiting for the subway train at the Songjiang Sports Center Station on Line 9 at 7 a.m. when a man came up behind her and grabbed her breasts, CCTV reports. Mo immediately tried to grab the man back, but he ran into the subway train that had just arrived. However, she didn’t let him get away so easily. Mo chased after him and finally caught him two stops later at Song Jiang University Town Station.
She dragged him by the collar out of the carriage, called the police and took a picture of the man. Police arrived at the scene and the man at once admitted that he committed the crime. Initial reports show that the man is not from Shanghai and is currently unemployed.
Mo posted her story on Weibo and netizens have praised her heroic actions.
“Nice! All women should be like this woman. That ways, perverts have nowhere to hide anymore,” @招财猫 wrote.
“Good job! You should have kicked him in the nuts when you had the chance,” @＿″也許丶伱卟懂, wrote.
“If that guy has any abilities, he should find a girlfriend. If he can’t find one, then he should behave himself,” @甜~` 品 wrote.
On the other hand, not every such story has a positive ending. A couple days ago, a woman who was victimized by a pervert on the Shanghai Metro while nobody bothered to help posted her story on Weibo:
“At Luoshan Road Station, which is on Lines 11 & 16, the man wearing gray molested me. I gave him a firm warning and told him to stop, he said he wasn’t doing anything and then even yelled at me. I got off two stops later and when I turned around I saw the man following me. I was really scared. I quickly got out of the station and hailed down a motorbike. Little did I know, he would chase after me and hit me. I already reported it to the police, but please help me catch this guy!”
Creeps should stop messing with women, especially this one.
