NYPD: Man Tries To Sexually Assault Woman, 21, At Subway Station Blocks From City Hall
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who they said tried to sexually assault a woman in a Lower Manhattan subway station — just blocks from City Hall Park.
The incident occurred last Monday night at the Fulton Street station, at Fulton and Nassau streets. The station serves the No. 2, 3, 4 and 5 and the A, C, J and Z trains.
The 21-year-old victim was near a turnstile when the suspect walked up behind her, grabbed her by the neck, covered her mouth and dragged her towards an elevator, police said.
The suspect told the victim, “I just want to love you baby,” police said.
The victim began screaming and bit the suspect on the hand before kicking an emergency intercom button by the elevator, police said.
The suspect let go of the victim and ran.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded snorkel-style ski jacket, police said.
