Police: Man wanted for attempted rape at Fordham Manor apartment
Police say a man is wanted in
connection to an attempted rape last week in the Fordham Manor section of the Bronx.
They have released photos of a man they say grabbed a 33-year-old woman from
behind inside the stairwell of her apartment building, tried to
rape her, and unzipped his pants.
Police say the woman fought
back and bit the man's right hand. This is when the man ran away and
was caught on surveillance
video leaving the apartment building.
The suspect was last seen
wearing a black jacket, a black winter hat and black pants with a white stripe
on the side. Officers say he's thin and probably in his 20s.
News 12 was told the victim
was not hurt but was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
Anyone with information on
the identity of the man is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
