The police used an immoral image to identify the man known as the & # 39; metro-rembandite & # 39 ;, prosecutors claim.

Isaiah Thompson, 23, was arrested Thursday and charged with pulling the emergency brakes on the subway from the New York City subway carriages, causing 747 delays over a three-month period.

Thompson is also claimed to have exposed himself on the back of a train on May 16 – an act observed by a commuter biting a photo of the man's penis and sending it to the police.

Five days later, on May 21, the & # 39; metro brake band became & # 39; caught on the surveillance camera on the outside of a train at the exact same train station, shortly before the brakes were pulled on the car.

According to The New York Post, the police compared those surveillance camera shots with the photo of the man who showed himself to the commuter on May 16 and realized that he was the same person. They eventually followed him with a tip.

Thompson has now been accused of reckless danger and criminal trespassing in connection with pulling the brakes on the metro cars.

He has also been accused of public fornication about the May 16 incident.

From Friday night, he was detained in police on a $ 5,000 cash bond.

Prior to Thompson's arrest on Thursday, authorities released surveillance video of the May 21 incident with a man riding the back of a train in Manhattan just before he took the brakes.

The man is now supposed to be Thompson.

The video depicted the suspect with a Yankees baseball cap and a Nike T-shirt with & # 39; Swag Do not Come Cheap & # 39; was printed.

He boarded the rear wagon on Tuesday, May 21 at West 14th Street subway station at 5.43 pm.

The man opened the back door and drove several stops on the outside of the train carriage before applying the emergency brake.

Thompson, 23, was arrested Thursday by police at his home in Brooklyn. The same day the police showed a video surveillance of a man riding a Manhattan train shortly before braking

The NYPD released the images of him and said he was wanted for reckless danger.

Authorities have been looking for a serial mask since March.

According to incident reports obtained by Jalopnik, a total of 747 rush-hour trains have been delayed or canceled due to a similar pattern of disruptions in the last three months.

Every time the suspect activates the emergency brake, this can cause delays for the dozens of trains that are left behind – hence the high number of reported incidents.
