NEW YORK CITY — A 38-year-old woman was sexually assaulted and robbed by two men after she asked one of them for directions in Chinatown, cops said.
The woman, whose identity was not immediately released, had asked one of the suspects for directions near Chrystie and Grand streets about 9:30 p.m. on April 15, according to the NYPD.
The suspect agreed to help and walked with her in the direction she needed to go, but then another man came from behind and slammed her into a wall while the first suspect pummeled her ribs and thigh, police said.
The first suspect is said to have sexually assaulted her in the attack and ran off with her purse, which contained her ID and debit card, cops said.
The first suspect is said to have long hair. Police were not able to provide any additional details about the second suspect.
