(Newser) – A young woman who was allegedly molested while sleeping on a New York subway later reported the attack—after seeing it posted on YouTube, the Daily News reports. In the video, the 21-year-old is asleep in her seat while a man gropes her for several seconds between her legs. Jasheem Smiley, 21, recorded the whole thing on his iPhone and posted it online: “I was petrified,” Smiley said. “I didn’t know what this guy is capable of. I didn’t know if he had a knife.” See the video here, but be warned, it's disturbing. (Read more sexual assault stories.)
