Suspect Wanted in Connection with Sexual Assault on Forsyth Street

Posted on: April 5th, 2019 at 5:04 am by

Cops are in pursuit of a man who they say sexually assaulted a woman in her Lower East Side apartment last week.

According to the police report, at about 3am on March 30, the perp approached the 23-year-old woman while she was sitting on her stoop near Forsyth and Grand Streets. He struck up a conversation and then proceeded to grope her.

When the resident opened the front door to the leave, the assailant did not flee, but rather led the victim back to her apartment where he continued to sexually assault her. The creep only left once the roommate came home.

Authorities describe the perp as 5 foot-8, weighing about 150 lbs., and last seen wearing a black Adidas sweatshirt.

Police released surveillance footage to the public for assistance in identifying him.
