The Bronx man charged with sexual abuse and forcible touching after allegedly exposing himself to a 9-year-old girl aboard a 7 train two weeks ago is now facing up to seven years in prison, according to the Queens District Attorney.

Ronald Dudley, 40, was arrested yesterday after an anonymous tip was submitted to police, and is accused of exposing his genitals to the victim and touching her forearm with his penis while on a Manhattan-bound 7 train on Feb. 14.

Dudley allegedly boarded the train at 61st Street at around 2:45 p.m., and stood next to the young girl as the train pulled out of the station. Moments later, according to the DA, the victim felt something touching her arm, looked up, an saw Dudley using his hand to “manipulate his exposed penis to touch her.”

Dudley allegedly fled the scene moments after the nine-year-old yelled out for her mother, whom she was traveling with.

“This was a horrible, disturbing act that no one – let alone an innocent child – should have to endure,” said Richard Brown, Queens District Attorney. “The defendant is a 40-year-old man who is alleged to have traumatized this little girl for his own demented sexual gratification. If the charges are proven true, he deserves to be locked away from society for a long time.”

Dudley is due back in Queens Criminal Court on March 15.

He’s only getting a sentence that’s 2 years less than her age? That’s disgusting! You know once he gets out he’ll do it again.

I well remember the first time a man pulled it out in front of me, I was eight. I wish the public had supported punishing men then. At the time I was told I should not have been out by myself. I had missed the bus home from school and was walking.


Disgusting. This is the kind of stuff we knew Roy Moore was doing right before Trump endorsed him.

What? A Bronx man? The Trumpsters swore he was from a homeless shelter around here.
