The NYPD is asking for the public’s help in finding a man who forced his way into a Brooklyn woman’s apartment and attempted to rape her on Saturday. Police said the man followed the woman, 59, to the door of her apartment in a building near 17th Avenue and Bay Ridge Parkway.
(According to Mr. BNI, a native Brooklyn boy, the area that surrounds that location used to be all Italian, but now has become heavily Muslim with mostly Arab-owned stores and mosques on every block)
PIX11 He pushed his way inside, exposed himself, forced the victim onto her couch and attempted to rape her, according to police. Cops said the victim resisted and the man slapped her in the face repeatedly. The woman was able to fight the attacker off and run out of her apartment. The man followed her out to the hallway and she was able to reenter her apartment and shut him out, police said.
The attacker banged on her door to try and get back in, then fled south on 17th Ave., cops said. EMS treated the victim on scene. The man is believed to be in his 20s and 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a light colored hooded sweater, a black coat, blue jeans and black sneakers.
Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
