Police Still Seeking Attorney Street Rapist

Posted on: October 19th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Police finally released more information regarding that early morning rape that transpired two Sundays ago (October 9) at the corner of Attorney and Delancey Streets. The serious offense attracted the precinct helicopter to the Lower East Side in pursuit of the criminal. As previously reported, numerous residents living at 87 Attorney heard the screams, and some even chased after the suspect.  The perp fled the scene, and is currently wanted by the NYPD.

Video surveillance shows the woman dragging a suitcase down the sidewalk, and a man approaching from behind.  He casually puts his hat down before allegedly raping the victim in the middle of broad daylight. After committing the crime, we see the suspect retrieve the hat before fleeing.

According to CBS News, police are seeking a black man between 20 and 22-years-old. He is described as being 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall with a skinny build, and weighing about 160 pounds.
