Police are investigating an incident in which a man allegedly exposed himself to a 14-year-old girl on the J train Monday morning.Police say the victim got on the train at the Woodhaven Boulevard stop. She told police that, while in transit, a male exposed himself to her. She got off the train two stops later, at the Eldert Lane stop, police said.

Authorities say the man followed her, then grabbed her and threatened her with a razor. She fled, spotting several school safety officers from a nearby high school. They helped the teen and called 911.

Police initially believed the suspect may have been the man wanted in a string of similar sex assaults in Queens, but further investigation led them to believe this is a separate incident.
