Police Release Sketch Of Suspect Wanted In String Of Bronx Sex Attacks

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance concerning the identity and whereabouts of a man wanted in connection with a string of sexual assaults in the Bronx.

All three attacks happened on the Baychester Avenue footbridge, which is located at Baychester Avenue and 222nd Street and crosses over the New England Thruway. The victims were also the same age.

The most recent attack occurred on June 23, when a man sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman at approximately 4:10 p.m. on the footbridge. On June 4, a man attempted to sexually assault another 19-year-old woman at the same location, police said.

Police believe a third attack on the footbridge, on Sept. 18, 2010, is related. In that incident, a man sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman on the footbridge.

Police released a sketch of the suspect in the hopes that the public could help identify him.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.crimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.

  • HUH

    VoteSharpton, what the hell are you babbling about??

    • To Vote Sharpton

      That is exactly what I was just wondering. Vote Sharpton has nothing better to do but to believe everybody is after balcks, hispanics and other races other when while. Get a job Vote Sharpton.

  • Martin

    Why don’t the cops stake out the bridge? After the second attack in the same place, they should’ve had surveillance and mavybe a decoy.

  • VoteSharpton

    What is this? Another person of color probably wrongfully accused of a crime. Looking at the sketch, I would say that the assailant is actually white, but made darker so the racist police and other white people can again accuse a black or hispanic of the crime.

    • From a white to brain dead

      You have no brains. Stop playing martyr. It does not matter what color or race this guy is. What matters is that he is a rapist and should be caught as soon as possible.
