Law enforcement sources said Taylor Quamae, 32, is wanted in connection with the brazen sexual assault that occurred at about 4:30 a.m. on March 10 inside a home on East 115th Street, within the confines of the 23rd Precinct.

According to authorities, Quamae allegedly forced his way inside the apartment and confronted the victim, a 34-year-old woman. It is unclear whether the victim knew him.
