SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A naked man was caught on camera harassing passengers at a San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit station last month.
In the newly released videotape, the man identified as 24-year-old acrobat Yeiner Perez can be seen lunging at people, doing handstands and backflips. The video was recorded by a station agent on her cellphone on May 10th at the 16th and Mission streets BART Station.
The agent was trying to shelter a woman who was accosted by Perez. She can be heard encouraging the woman, who is audibly shaken to get inside the booth to escape the naked man.
BART spokesman Jim Allison told KCBS that the station agent did everything right that day when she called for help.
“It appears that the man walked into the station, off the street and although there were plenty of people around who saw him acting erratically, no one called police until our station agent stepped up and called 911 and that’s exactly what the station agents are directed to do in their manual,” said Allison.
