It’s one of the world’s best metro train networks in the world, but the world’s got its creeps, and the MTR is no exception.

A 37-year-old man was arrested earlier this week after he was caught by commuters masturbating in front of a woman at Wong Tai Sin MTR station.

Video of MTR staff apprehending the man, surnamed Chan, on a station platform on Monday evening was sent to Apple Daily, which published it today.

The footage was submitted by a woman surnamed Lo, who had the unfortunate experience of being the focus of Chan’s attention prior to his arrest for disorderly conduct in a public place.

Lo told the newspaper she had just finished work and was meeting a friend in Wong Tai Sin for dinner that evening.

She arrived at the station at around 6pm, which she remarked wasn’t crowded at the time and, after getting through the ticket barrier, she stood against a wall to check her phone for directions.

It was at this point she noticed Chan standing uncomfortably close to her, she said. He began to follow her throughout the station.

“No matter where I went, he would follow me, he wouldn’t leave me alone even if I ran, he would follow me,” Lo said, adding that she noticed he was carrying a bag in front of him and was worried he had a weapon.

“When he heard me reporting him [to a member of MTR staff], he ran onto the station platform.”

He was pursued by three members of station staff who restrained him at the station and prevented him from leaving, as Chan tried to leave the platform, he could be heard in a video recorded by Lo saying “give me another chance sir.”

It was at this point that Lo discovered that he had his hand down his pants and was masturbating.

Police arrived at the scene shortly afterwards to arrest him.
