Subway Flasher "Not A Police Matter": Cop

A quick-thinking subway rider was able to snap a picture of the man she says exposed himself on the train, but was given the brushoff by a cop when she tried to report the incident.

After spotting the public masturbator on the northbound number 3 train on August 7th, the 41-year-old FBI employee went to the 32nd Precinct where, the New York Daily News reports:

A female uniformed officer... told her the incident "was not a police matter" and instructed her to call 311.

According to the NYPD, an investigation has been launched and the cop has been told to report to the Internal Affairs Bureau tomorrow.
