Remember that “upskirt perv” we were worried about a little while ago? The one taking pictures up women’s skirts in the York St. station during one of the hottest weeks of the year? That asshole?

Gothamist now reports that vigilante (or probably just regular) justice has won out, and a tipster sent in a photo of the guy getting arrested by undercover cops.

Details are slim, but the guy in recent posters put up around the station, described by a witness as “look[ing] like most people who work in Dumbo (a bit hipster-ish),” appears to be the same sulky one getting arrested in these pictures.

He looks about as happy as I would if, say, someone tried to stick a phone between my legs while I was doing something risky and presumptuous like using public transportation to get to my job. Just a hypothetical!
