A man is accused of rubbing a bag containing human feces on a 43-year-old woman seated on a bench at a subway station in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.
Police say the incident happened last week on the platform of the southbound East 241 Street subway station. News 12 is told the man also hit her in the back of her head and fled. 
Police say 37-year-old Frank Abrokwa was arrested Monday night. 
Police say he is facing forcible touching, menacing, disorderly conduct and harassment charges.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority released a statement saying, “The video speaks for itself and must have been as awful to experience as it is disgusting to watch. We appreciate the NYPD’s excellent detective work leading to a rapid arrest of the suspect. It’s another example of why we fully support efforts by the governor and mayor to deliver essential mental health services to those who need them.”
