Cops are looking for a creep who tried to sexually assault a woman while she was walking home in Queens.

According to police, at 10 p.m. on Feb. 23, a 41-year-old female was walking home in the vicinity of Shore Avenue and Princeton Street in Jamaica when she was approached by an unknown man who had his pants down. He pulled out a firearm, demanded a sex act from the victim and grabbed her by the neck, forcing her head down to his crotch.

The victim screamed, and the suspect ripped her purse from her shoulder before fleeing in an unknown direction. The victim was taken to an area hospital, where she was treated and released.

On March 4, the NYPD released video of the suspect taken from a home’s security footage.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
