A knife-wielding creep in Queens who sexually assaulted and robbed a woman early on Saturday morning remains at large, police reported.

Authorities said the attack occurred at about 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 6 in the vicinity of Northern Boulevard and 110th Street in Corona.

According to law enforcement sources, the perpetrator approached a 45-year-old woman as she walked through the area. While confronting her, police reported, he pulled out a knife, then dragged her into a nearby alley.

Once in the alley, cops said, he forcibly removed the victim’s necklace and headphones. The deviant thief then ordered the victim to perform a sexual act on him.

Following the sexual assault, police reported, the creep took off on foot and was last seen heading southbound along 109th Precinct.

The attack was reported to the 115th Precinct. EMS brought the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

Later on Saturday, the NYPD released a surveillance camera image of the suspect. Police described him as a man with a medium complexion and build, standing about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and wearing a light green hooded sweatshirt, black jogging pants with reflective stripes on the side, and gray sneakers.
