Police: NYC Woman Bound with Duct Tape, Sexually Assaulted

December 11, 2020

NEW YORK — New York City police are looking for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman Thursday after following her into into a Brooklyn apartment building, acting like he had a gun and tying her up with duct tape and zip ties.

The unidentified man fled in a gray Mitsubishi Outlander SUV after attacking the 47-year-old woman around 12:40 p.m. at her home in the borough's Marine Park neighborhood, police said.

The woman was listed in stable condition at NYC Health & Hospitals/Coney Island.

The man — seen in surveillance video wearing dark clothing, jeans with light-colored knee patches and a black facemask — simulated a firearm to force his way inside the apartment, police said.

In addition to the assault, police said he also took the woman's cellphone and an unknown amount of cash.


Exceptional windstorms that could leave some Houston residents without power for weeks were a once-in-a-generation event and the damage left in their wake is comparable to that caused by a hurricane, meteorologists said Friday.
