The hustle and bustle in the Mexico City subway was interrupted by an unusual event, where policemen arrested a man who disguised himself as a woman to get on the carriage intended for women and take advantage of it to harass women passenger.
It should be mentioned that, due to the high rate of complaints of sexual harassment, in the CDMX Metro there are two exclusive carriages for women, this with the aim of avoiding such a situation and being able to feel safer when traveling on this public transport.
However, this man had the idea of â€‹â€‹disguising himself as a woman to go unnoticed and commit his misdeeds, but he was discovered by a young woman, who pointed out that he had been masturbating in the middle of the wagon.
