Man rapes woman after forcing her into Bronx building, NYPD says

The attack happened in Mott Haven on Sunday morning, police said.

A man raped a 27-year-old woman in the South Bronx over the weekend, police said. 

The suspect simulated a gun and forced the woman inside a building near St. Ann’s Avenue and East 135th Street in Mott Haven at about 6:45 a.m. Sunday, according to cops. 

He then made her perform a sex act and raped her, police said. 

The suspect took $40 from the victim and fled in an unknown direction. The NYPD on Tuesday released a surveillance image of him on East 138th Street. 

The woman went to NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln, where she was treated and released, police said. 

No arrests have been made and the investigation was ongoing.
