Brooklyn Women On Edge After Park Slope Rape

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A rapist is on the loose in Brooklyn after a brazen daytime attack.

Police said an armed, masked man demanded money from a 22-year-old worker at a Park Slope bakery. When the victim said she didn’t have any, the attacker forced the woman, who was working alone, to a back room and raped her just before 9 a.m. on Friday, police said.

Authorities declined to release further details about the incident to avoid identifying the victim.

Officials transported the victim to Kings County Hospital, where she was treated and released.

The NYPD described the suspect as a black male, 160 pounds, 5-feet-5-inches tall and wearing dark clothing.

Women in the area are on edge and hope the suspect will be caught soon.

“I hope they catch him. Rape is a very, very devastating thing, and I hope they catch him—whoever he is,” one woman told 1010 WINS.

“I’m pretty cautious in regards to going out when I think I could be in danger, but yeah, that’s definitely a concern. That’s a huge concern,” another woman said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.

    hey! she is a woman and she can defend herself. remember american women want their EQUAL rights. let them be equal enough to defend themselves against men. she didn’t need a “man” by her side to open the store. she is equal to a man, remember? you forgot about being equal?? remember equality???

    Maybe there’d be less incidents like this if normal, law abiding citizens were allowed to carry guns in NYC just like all the criminals do. He was armed and the girl wasn’t. Does this make any sense? Thank you so much you stupid NYC liberal politicians. I want my NYC back!!!

    Of course he’s black. Seems like 80% of rapists are black and the other 19% is hispanic or white. LAst 1% is asian, I guess?

    No woman or man should be left alone at work. Maybe what these shops need is a security alarm system, that, or a pair of pit bulls.

    I guess a few years from now it will be inappropriate to describe someone’s race as “black”.

  16. JasonS says:
