BROWNSVILLE — A 26-year-old woman was forced away from a Brooklyn bus stop early Tuesday morning, taken to a nearby park, and raped, police said Saturday.
The NYPD released a rendering of a man they believe is responsible for the sexual assault, which occurred on May 29 at 3:10 a.m.
Police say the suspect approached a woman standing at a bus stop on East New York Avenue and Ralph Avenue. Telling her her had a gun, he forced her into Lincoln Terrace Park, which is one block away.
Once inside the park, police said the man displayed the firearm to her, and proceeded to sexually assault her.
The attacker fled the scene immediately after, and the woman was removed to Woodhull Hospital, and in stable condition.
Police describe the victim as a man in his 20s, 6 feet tall, 150 pounds, and last seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt; red, black and white sneakers; blue jeans, and in possession of a gun.
The NYPD asks anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). All calls will be kept confidential.
