The NYPD is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man wanted for questioning in connection with an attempted rape in Corona on July 17.

According to police in the 115th Precinct, the attack took place at about 1:20 a.m. in a residential building in the vicinity of 108th Street and 38th Avenue when the 74-year-old victim answered a knock at her door and an unidentified man pushed his way inside.

He knocked the victim to the floor, hit her on her head with a bottle and dragged her to the bedroom where he attempted to rape her.

Police said the man eventually fled the building in an unknown direction. The victim was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

The person wanted for questioning is described by the NYPD as a Hispanic male standing 5 feet, 5 inches tall with low-cut black hair. He was last seen wearing a baseball cap, a dark-colored shirt and gray pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish, 1 (888) 57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577.

All tips are strictly confidential.
