Cops still seeking suspect in attempted rape on city subway

Police on Saturday, June 17 released additional security camera footage of the creep they say attempted to rape a woman aboard the New York City subway earlier this month.

Cops on Saturday released additional images of the creep they say exposed himself to a woman aboard a southbound J train before attempting to rape her earlier this month.

Police say a 29-year-old woman was on the train and at the Chambers Street station at around 9:10 p.m. on June 9 when an unknown man approached her. Authorities say the suspect then exposed his penis and attempted to force oral sex.

The man then punched the woman, pinned her to the ground and attempted to remove her clothing, police said, before also swiping her cellphone, money and keys. The victim was able to flee to safety off of the train, on which the suspect remained.

After her escape, the victim was taken by EMS to an area hospital, where she was treated for her injuries.

The suspect is described by police as a man with a dark complexion, between the ages of 30 and 40, that is approximately 5’6”-5’7” tall. He was last seen wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and pants, black and white sneakers, and a white face mask.
