Man accused of groping of 4-year-old girl on subway, threatening mother in Bronx

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police say they've arrested and charged that man who groped a 4-year-old girl on a subway train in the Bronx.

Kwame Johnson, 42, is now facing several charges including sex abuse and harassment.

Officials said a 33-year-old woman and her young daughter were riding on a southbound 4 train around 11:30 p.m. last week, when the Johnson allegedly boarded at Jerome Avenue and West 183rd Street.

The mother told the girl to sit down, and that's when she said the suspect slid his hand under daughter's rear.

When the mother confronted him, she said Johnson threatened to shoot her.

She recorded video of the suspect, then took her child and moved to another train car.
