Search dogs were brought in yesterday to track down a suspect who fled after attacking a young woman on Delancey Street. It happened around 4 p.m. as a 17-year old girl was walking along Delancey. According to police, the suspect took her to the back of a building and ripped her jacket off. The Daily News reports the victim kicked the man in the crotch and then escaped.
For a short time yesterday afternoon, police were inside Pacific Aquarium and Pet Store at 46 Delancey. But the investigation was centered near the intersection of Forsyth and Rivington streets. A K-9 team went inside 174 Forsyth, a building for hearing impaired residents across from Sara D. Roosevelt Park. This morning the search continues for the suspect. See more photos after the jump.
It would be helpful if a description of the assailant be given so that at least the female population around here can be on the lookout.
We will post that information as soon as police make it available.
