RAPE – The NYPD is asking the public’s assistance identifying a suspect wanted for a rape.
At approximately 10 p.m. on Aug. 23, the victim, a 52-year-old female, was exiting the R train on 63rd Drive and Queens Boulevard when the suspect began asking for her name and phone number. The victim refused and walked to a pharmacy on 63rd Drive. The suspect followed the victim into the store and started to harass her inside the store. After the suspect left the store, the victim left the pharmacy while the suspect stood waiting outside for her.
The suspect followed the victim, and, in front of 63-45 Saunders Street, the suspect grabbed her, threw her down a flight of steps and raped her. The suspect then removed the victim’s cell phone and purse. EMS transported the victim to an area hospital.
The suspect is described as a Black male in his 20s, 5-foot-7 with a moustache. The suspect told the victim his name was “Junior.”
