Police say that any suspect who shows signs of committing sexual harassment would be captured on the spot. Authorities also encourage passengers to give tips for tracking down suspects.
The authorities reaffirmed in its WeChat article that it had zero tolerance toward sexual harassment, and spoke out against the harassers instead of urging women to wear appropriate clothing.
“You can wear any beautiful dress you want. Let us deal with the gropers on the subway,” said the police in the article, which Chinese netizens had praised for its focus on the perpetrators instead of the victims.
