The NYPD is seeking this suspect who allegedly raped a woman in Rego Park on Friday, August 23.

The NYPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect wanted for rape in Rego Park.

On Friday, a 52-year-old woman was exiting the R train on 63rd Drive and Queens Boulevard around 10 p.m. when the suspect began to probe the woman for her name and phone number, said cops.

After she refused to answer, the suspect followed her into a nearby Rite Aid where police said he started to harass her.

The suspect then left and waited for the woman outside of the store. Once she exited the Rite Aid, he followed her to her home on Saunders Street where he allegedly grabbed her, threw her down a flight of stairs and raped her. The suspect then stole her cell phone and purse, said police.

The victim was transported to an area hospital.

The suspect told the victim his name is Junior, and he is described as black, in his 20s, around five feet seven inches tall and has a mustache.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
