The NYPD is looking for the suspect wanted for an attempted rape in Richmond Hill last week.
On Friday, July 5 at approximately 3:15 a.m., a 21-year-old woman was walking in the vicinity of 115th Street and 85th Avenue — a quiet residential part of the neighborhood — when she was approached from behind by the suspect. He grabbed her, threw her onto the ground and attempted to rape her. The suspect was scared off by a car that drove by and fled on foot.
He is described as a Hispanic man, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with a medium complexion.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8447). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.net or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
At last month’s community council meeting, the 102nd Precinct’s commanding officer, Captain Hank Sautner, announced the precinct received 10 more officers.
