NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are asking for the public’s help to track down a sex assault suspect in Queens.

Authorities said the suspect followed a 35-year-old woman near 89th Street and Jamaica Avenue on Tuesday morning before he grabbed her from behind and placed her in a choke hold.

Police said that the suspect then dragged the woman into an alley, punched her repeatedly and sexually assaulted her. The incident happened around 6 a.m. Tuesday in the Woodhaven section.

“Oh wow, I go to work at that time. That’s kind of disturbing to me because I’ve been here for a while,” Sharon Waters told CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis.

“It’s a nice neighborhood. Nothing like that happens around here, I’m kind of shocked to hear that,” Marcia Bajwas said.

The suspect is described by police as being a Hispanic or Guyanese male in his mid 20’s, approximately 5’9” tall with a medium build and short black spiky hair.

Anyone with information 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.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.

  4. jack says:

    is that a crucifix on his chest? He’s a christian; there is no way he could have perpetrated such a violent act.


      It’s a hoodoo rabbit’s foot.

  5. Ralph Kootz says:

    that looks like a Guyanese guy. I don’t get what satisfaction people get out of raping a woman. This is what sets them apart from normal people. I don’t get turned on by knowing a woman truly doesn’t want to be with me, or if she’s crying. That’s a total kill of the moment. THese people are really disturbed.

    1. Danny says:

      All Guyanese people I know have very low moral standards, so I don’t doubt he is from that country. Maybe his wife cheated on him and that is why he is taking it on on other women.
