A New York City man has been charged with assaulting women in the subway system by kneeling before them and kissing and licking their feet.
Police say eight of nine women picked Joseph Weir out of lineups, the Daily News reported.
Weir was arrested Thursday night after he allegedly struck again in lower Manhattan, attacking a woman on a Queens-bound train. Investigators say they have had 14 previous complaints.
The UPI news agency said that Thesaid Weir would go to women, who were alone at night, asking: "Can I date you? Can I be your slave?"
He would then allegedly kneel down, sometimes taking off a woman's shoes, and lick her feet -- in one case also running his hands across a victim's thighs and genital area.
