He started flirting with her on a Metro train. But then it quickly escalated to inappropriate, police said.

Metro Transit Police have arrested and charged Wayne Anthony Dammons, 26, of Southeast Washington, with a second-degree sexual offense. They said the incident unfolded Monday afternoon on the Red Line.

A teenage girl told police she was approached by a man, later identified as Dammons. He sat by her and asked for money. Dammons touched her in a “sexual manner,” according to Metro Transit Police.

He then exposed himself to the teen and left the train at Glenmont, police said.
