NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Sources told CBS 2 police were questioning a man Thursday evening after a woman said she someone tried to sexually assault her in a restroom at Inwood’s Fort Tryon Park.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, shortly after noon, a man walked into the women’s bathroom at Anne Loftus Playground inside the park, dropped his pants and grabbed a woman.
The victim screamed and the man ran off, possibly leaving a hat on the footpath leading away from the bathroom in the process, TV 10/55’s Lou Young reported.
The victim was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, but appeared to be unharmed.
The NYPD was using its K-9 Unit to try to follow the scent of the suspect.
Sources told CBS 2 police from the 34th Precinct picked up a person of interest nearby, but so far no charges have been filed.
