Police arrest man who groped cop and ran shirtless through Sunnyside


Aug. 6, 2017 Staff Report

The police have arrested a man who allegedly tried to grope an off duty female cop on the 7 train as it approached the 40th Street subway station on Friday.

Fnu Kamruzzaman, 27, was charged with rubbing his genitals on the officer’s arm while they were riding a Manhattan-bound 7 train around 10:20 a.m. Friday.

The officer confronted him and he fled after the train pulled into the 40th Street station, police said. Police released video of Kamruzzaman running shirtless through Sunnyside after he left the station.

“This pervert picked the wrong victim – fled leaving behind his backpack, phone, his DNA, & his dignity. Transit SVU Dets got him within hrs!” tweeted NYPD Transit Chief Joseph Fox.

Kamruzzaman, who lives on 72nd Street near the Roosevelt/74th Street station, was charged with forcible touching and sexual abuse, cops said.

In 2014, according to the Daily News, Kamruzzaman was cuffed for rubbing himself on a 15-year-old girl on a train as it passed through the Upper West Side.

How many people are here in 2021 reading this because he has been caught a 3rd time?
One must wonder how many times he hasn’t been caught? Masks are very useful to some nowadays; hopefully, soon all our arms will be sore and we can take them off and guys like this can stop hiding behind them and feeling emboldened to act like this.


While the tweet from the police chief is spot on it’s slightly unprofessional in my opinion. Technically one is innocent until proven guilty so to make such a tweet can potentially give the defence attorney for this guy a little advantage if any steps in the investigation or evidence collection gets challenged. Police are suppose to be impartial and fact based (in theory of course) so to give the opposition fodder of even the most minute type seems silly.


“Fnu Kamruzzaman’s lawyer argued that he could have inadvertently touched the cop because of rush-hour crowds on the train.”


I was on that train. I think it was just an mistake from standing too close. The officer beat person and held him by his book bag he tried to get away because he had no id. He ripped his shirt off and flee.


It’s probably “First Name Unknown.” Border officials use that when they don’t know/can’t figure out/can’t be bothered to find out the first name.


It does stand for first name unknown. In some cultures, people only have one name and when they immigrate, that name is used as a last name and they receive FNU as a first name.


Fat shaming is wrong no matter the target. This man needs help, an attack on his self esteem at this moment of crisis in his life helps no one.


Groped, Tried to grope, rubbed, what’s the bottom line? He winked? Why the heck would he leave his stuff behind? This guy definitely mentally challenged. This is not going to teach anyone any lesson.
