Star Muhammad, who helped nab alleged foot freak, shows boots he licked.
Tired from a long day at work, Star Muhammad fell asleep while riding the subway to night school - and woke up to find a disturbed man molesting her leg.
"Here was this thing, laying stretched out on the floor, with my leg wrapped around his arm, kissing my boot," she told the Daily News yesterday.
Muhammad, 40, said when she realized what was happening, she could barely believe her eyes or her ears.
As she shook off the assailant - accused foot-fetish freak Joseph Weir, who has confessed to attacking 70 women - he spouted a line from the movie "Wayne's World."
"I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!" he pleaded.
She headed for the exit, dragging the predator along the floor, but he didn't loosen his grip until the E train pulled into the World Trade Center stop.
"When the doors finally opened, he stood there with his arms open - like he wanted to give me a hug," she marveled about her April 10 encounter.
Muhammad was one of those who identified him, but she's not sure what kind of punishment would fit the crime.
"I think he has mental problems," she said. "I don't think he was out to hurt anyone."
Maybe if Mrs. Volkoh had her feet licked by Mr. Weir, he might have seen things differently.
