Man exposes himself on Metro train; rider tries to report it but was turned away

A man was caught on video exposing himself on Metro's Green Line, but when another rider went to report it he said he was turned away as Metro could do nothing about it. 

A man, who rides the Metro daily, recorded cellphone video of a man exposing himself in front of several other people Friday morning. 

"This person is exposing himself, scanning the crowd, he’s looking for female passengers and then he's starting to touch himself and after a while he exposed himself," the man, who wants to remain anonymous, told FOX 11. 

He says he made two phone calls to Metro's Hotline to report it, but nothing was done about the situation. 

"[I told them] I have videos of this person, you want the description, the person is probably still on the train. I’m a daily commuter, I see this person all the time on this train. And they said no the person is probably gone and there’s nothing we can do about it".

Other Metro riders say they see things like regularly. 

Officials with Metro's Transportation Authority said they would look into the incident to see if their operators were unresponsive and unhelpful at the time the call was made. 

Metro released the following statement, "Nothing is more important to us than the safety and comfort of our customers, so we are unhappy any time this type of illegal activity occurs on our system and are disappointed when we don’t respond as quickly as we think is necessary as was the case here. We are investigating what happened to the customer’s report so we can improve our response time. We are working closely with our law enforcement partners to improve our ability to respond to all illegal activities on the system and making investments in the people and technologies necessary to improve our response times."
