New York City police arrested a man on Thursday for allegedly attempting to rape a woman last week on a moving subway train in Manhattan.

Chris Tapia, 23, of Staten Island, is charged with attempted rape, sexual abuse, forcible touching, and public lewdness. 

Police said a 24-year-old woman was on a moving northbound ‘4’ train on Nov. 17 when an unknown individual sat next to her. 

The individual touched the woman and tried to pull down her skirt, police said. The woman tried to flee to another train car to safety, police said.

The suspect was detained at the Bowling Green subway station and boarded a ferry to Staten Island.

Police are asking anyone with information on this incident to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477. 

The alleged sexual assault comes amid a general uptick in violence on New York City subways. Earlier this week a woman and a good Samaritan were injured on an L train pulling into the 14th Street Union Square station in Manhattan in an unprovoked attack.

Violent attacks and sexual assaults are becoming the norm on NYC subway platforms now thanks to Democrat policies.

The list of violence on the MTA goes on and on.

Below is a list of some of the most recent incidents:

Last month, a 78-year-old man was brutally beaten on a Manhattan subway after asking people to turn down music.

A man was attacked by an assailant wielding a samurai sword at a Manhattan subway station.

Earlier this month a gang of females clad in head-to-toe neon-green leotards stormed a New York City subway and robbed several teenagers.

Last month, a man was fatally stabbed on a New York City subway.

A 21-year-old woman visiting New York City from St. Louis, Missouri was raped on a subway platform last month.

A 14-year-old boy was fatally stabbed on an New York City subway platform over the summer.

A 15-year-old boy has been fatally shot after a dispute escalated into violence on a New York City subway.

A mom of five was brutally attacked at a Queens subway station by a homeless maniac who had 7 prior arrests.

A 43-year-old man was fatally stabbed on the L train after a dispute.

Of the subway attacks that have occurred this year, two of them have been fatal, including an Oct 17 shove, when a father of three was thrown onto the subway tracks and fatally hit in Queens, NY.

In January, a graduate student of NYU was pushed to her death onto the tracks at a Times Square subway station.
