Police are looking for a man suspected of trying to rape a woman at the 110th Street and Cathedral Parkway subway station on Jan. 4, according to an email sent earlier today by Barnard Public Safety.
According to the New York Police Department, the 36-year-old woman was exiting the subway at about 3:30 p.m. when the suspect came up behind her and pulled down her pants. The suspect fled when the woman—who was uninjured—began to scream.
The suspect is described as about 35 years old, 6 feet tall, and weighing 250 pounds, with a black cap, black sneakers, and a waist-length black jacket. See a sketch of the suspect here.
If you have any information regarding this attempted rape, contact the NYPD's Crime Stoppers through their hotline, 800-577-TIPS, or their website, www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
