Detectives need the public’s help in finding the armed creep who raped a 15-year-old girl at gunpoint in Queens last weekend.

The NYPD released on Wednesday night video footage of the suspect involved in the sexual assault, which occurred at 9 p.m. on April 18 in the area of Henley Road and Kingston Place in Jamaica Estates.
