NEW YORK (KTLA) -- A man suspected of groping a woman in a New York subway escaped from police by running onto the tracks.
He first begged a plainclothes officer to be spared from punishment, and then he runs off, jumping from the platform onto the tracks.
He missed the dangerous third rail twice during the getaway.
It's not known if police ever caught up with him.
