WEST VILLAGE — A career criminal sexually abused a woman in Greenwich Village on Sunday, according to police and news reports.

Cory Reid, 33, was arrested at a residential building on Jones Street near Bleecker Street on Sunday morning after a woman reported that he assaulted her about 8:45 a.m., according to the criminal complaint.

The 23-year-old woman met with Reid for drinks on Saturday night and then he allegedly forced himself on her in the morning, the New York Post reported.

Reid was charged with two felony counts of sexual abuse and committing a criminal sex act by force, court records show. He was arraigned on Monday.

Reid's court-appointed attorney did not immediately respond to an inquiry.

Reid has more than 80 prior arrests, including for grand larceny and drug possession, the Post reported.

The New York native was being held at Manhattan Detention Complex on $7,500 bail on Wednesday, Department of Correction records show.
