A 42-year-old Queens man allegedly molested an infant on the 7 train Saturday, police said.
According to a NYPD spokesman, Antonio Guarchaj of Corona, allegedly sat next to a woman and her 10-month old baby on a Manhattan bound 7 train at around 1:15 pm before touching the infant’s feet and placing his hand up the child’s skirt, the police said.
Witnesses followed Guarchaj and he was arrested at the 52nd Street – Roosevelt Avenue stop on Saturday afternoon.
Guarchaj was charged with sex abuse, forcible touching, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Guarchaj has four prior arrests. None of them involve sex abuse.
He was arraigned Sunday and is being held on a $1,000 bail or $1,000 bond. His next scheduled court date is Friday.
