The mother of a man who was arrested for rubbing his private parts on a woman in a crowded train, said that her son was just looking for a good wife.
The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 35-year-old Bassam Syed on Tuesday, after a woman said that he rubbed himself on her while traveling in the number 4 train.
Syed was charged with persistent sexual abuse. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted. Last year, Syed was found guilty of rubbing his private parts on a 32-year-old woman who was riding the number 6 train.
Syed was seen on video fleeing from police by jumping onto the tracks at 68th Street station in Manhattan. He was also arrested for forcibly kissing a 4-year-old girl.
The mother of the suspect however, insisted that her son is just looking for the right woman. She said that it is not easy to find a good wife with who to have children.
“There's nothing wrong with him,” she added.
