A Black man riding a New York City bus was arrested for assault after he punched another passenger he caught touching a 15-year-old girl.
According to Moise Morancy, who posted the viral video of the altercation on his Facebook page, he was riding the bus when a drunk man got one and began making inappropriate sexual advances on a teenage girl sitting next him.
“At first he started caressing her hand and I saw how uncomfortable it made her … so she let go and put her hands in her pocket,” Morancy wrote of the passenger.
“He then proceeded to forcibly do it again. In the process of doing so, he hit my knee and I told him ‘Yo, bro. Don’t touch me’. Then he started getting aggressive and saying ‘I can do whatever I want, you BLACK PIECE OF S__T!”
Morancy said he backed off a bit to de-esculate the situation, but then stepped in again when he saw the man feel up the young girl’s thigh.
