    No arrests have been made since the assault took place. PATCO riders who spoke to NBC10 say they’ve seen few posts on social media or flyers reporting the incident.

    “I’ve been taking the train last week and this week,” Carly Gregg said. “So it’s just really scary knowing there’s a predator out here. You know he’s among us.”

    If you have any information on the suspect’s identity or the location of the black pickup truck, please call Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Tanner Ogilvie at 856-650-6398 or DRPA Corporal Joseph Ebling at 856-969-7884.
