In one of the more disturbing online posts I have ever seen, someone posted a video of an attempted sexual assault.
Late Saturday morning, a video was posted from the Upper East Side subway platform in New York of a man attempting to rape a woman.
Instead of helping the woman, everyone whipped out their phones and started to take video.
The NYPD Transit Police reported the video in the hopes of someone being able to identify the alleged assailant…
This is an additional photo of the suspect- If you were one of the witnesses who stepped in and saved the victim from further harm, we’d like to hear from you- You can DM @NYPDTips (for Spanish, call 888-57-PISTA)- and please call 911 immediately if you spot him pic.twitter.com/kmlMSSs1Wv

The victim, according to reports, only suffered minor injuries.
The lack of action was so despicable even actor Michael Rapaport spoke up about it…
If you see something don’t Say Something don’t Do Something….
The Old NYC is back, enjoy.
