Police Searching For Suspect in Rape on Attorney Street

Must Read

On the morning of October 9th, a Sunday, we reported that a police helicopter had been brought in to search for a rape suspect, after a woman was attacked on Attorney Street. Now police have released security camera video showing the suspect just before the attack occurred.

The incident happened at about 7 a.m.  In the video, you can see the man stop and leave a hat on the hood of a car. Police say the suspect came up from behind and sexually assaulted the woman on the sidewalk, near Rivington Street.  She fought him off. He then ran back towards the camera and picked up the hat, before fleeing the scene.

The suspect is described as a 20 to 22-year-old man, between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall. He weighed about 160 pounds with a skinny build. If you have any information, call police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or go to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

  1. You’re absolutely right. At the time we posted the story this morning, the only version available was from Channel 2. We’ve replaced it with the Daily News video, which fortunately does not have a commercial before the security camera footage.
