Police: Teen Sexually Assaulted, Robbed At Northport LIRR Station

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for a suspect who they say robbed and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old boy at a Long Island Rail Road station.

It happened on August 10 inside a bathroom at the Northport station on the Port Jefferson Line of the LIRR.

“The fact that it happened here, it can happen anywhere,” Northport commuter Keelin Cheely told CBS 2’s John Slattery. “It shouldn’t happen at all. It’s frightening.”

Police say the attack happened at 2 p.m. The victim, a 16-year-old boy, had just gone into the unisex bathroom designed for only one person.

Police say he was followed in by a man who locked the door behind the two of them.

“And the sexual assault took place and a robbery,” said Sgt. Kim Riley with the MTA police.

The suspect stole $50 from the victim, who then called police.

The attack has rattled commuters.

“Considering I’m here at that time, it’s pretty scary,” said commuter Amanda Swist. “I thought there was a camera.”

Sharp-eyed commuters have seen a camera inside the building, but police say it’s a dummy that was mounted by the news vendor.

The suspect is said to be 25 to 40, 5’10’ to 6′ tall weighing about 250 to 300 pounds. He had a double chin and a mole under one eye.

“He has a tattoo on the neck, lettering. Had a do-rag. We had a pretty good description of the suspect,” said Sgt. Riley.

Police call it horrific but isolated and hope someone can identify the attacker from the sketch. 
 
Crime Stoppers and the MTA police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

    “The suspect is said to be 25 to 40, 5’10′ to 6′ tall weighing about 250 to 300 pounds. He had a double chin and a mole under one eye.”

    You can tell us he has a double chin (LOL) but you can’t mention his race or ethnic background? Freaking pathetic! He looks kind of hispanic in the sketch but who knows? We wouldn’t want to offend anyone by providing an accurate description. Pathetic.

    ‘ “We had a pretty good description of the suspect,” said Sgt. Riley.’

    Well.. they HAD a good description until the PC media decided to filter it out of fear of offending law-abiding citizens that have nothing to do with this. Makes perfect sense!

    On another note…

    “He has a tattoo on the neck, lettering.”

    This should be the universal sign for POS anti-social garbage that can’t get along with society. Parents… if you see your daughter with a guy with a neck tattoo.. shoot first… I’ll vote for acquittal.

      Par for the course by the “liberal/progressive” mainstream “news” media. God forbid they offend a potential customer. They just don’t get it. Hopeless.

    he’ll be walking funny in prison (if he can walk at all)

  4. Maddie says:

    NO ONE OUT THERE RECOGNIZES THIS POS?

    TURN HIM IN.

    PRAY FOR THE POOR CHILD.

  5. MADDIE says:

    TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY.

    NOT A FACE THAT ANYONE COULD FORGET.

    SOMEONE MUST KNOW THIS POS.

    TURN HIM IN.

    PRAY FOR THE POOR CHILD.

    What a disgusting, filthy animal.

    We should take people like him, tie him up, douse him with gasoline and burn him alive.

    This guy makes me sick to be a human!

    1. Squanto says:

      That’s no way to talk about your husband.

      1. The (real) Steve says:

        Hey Squanto – wake up, scungilli-head –
        hurry up and finish your nap – they’re about to start reruns of Jersey Shore.

  9. Steve says:

    Hmmm…an August 10th “attack”?….Yeah, we should get right on this, so we catch him before he gets away….I’m sure this is at the top of the blotter.

  10. KiKi says:

    WHERE ARE THE SECURITY CAMERAS NOW? DOO RAG.

    DESCRIPTIONS UP THE YIN YANG, BUT NO MENTION OF RACE.

    My prayers are with this young boy.

    1. Gina says:

      Dopey, it says black man.

      1. kikI says:

        HEY BRIGHT EYES- YOU’RE THE DOPE- IN THE ORIGINAL REPORT, THERE WAS NO MENTION OF RACE.

        THIS IS AN UPDATED ARTICLE.

        USLALLY RACE IS NOT SPECIFED- JUST SAYING.

      2. KPMc says:

        I am reading this 19 hours after both you and Kiki did and I see absolutely no mention of race. The PC police are afraid of offending law-abiding citizens that have nothing to do with this.

        Assuming that decent people of the same race would be offended by a description… Now THAT is racist!
