NYPD Releases Surveillance Video of Suspect in Attempted Rape on Ludlow Street

Posted on: March 13th, 2018 at 5:07 am by

Police are actively pursuing a suspect wanted for an attempted rape in the doorway of 127 Ludlow Street (next to SET L.E.S.) late last month. The 7th Precinct this week released surveillance of the suspect.

As previously reported, the female victim allegedly got into a fight with her boyfriend, who subsequently left in a huff. She started crying, and the creep came to comfort her, allegedly pushing her against the wall inside the lobby and grabbing her vagina. A Good Samaritan heard the victim scream, stepped in, and the perp fled.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74682). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
