Police are looking for a man who attempted to rape an employee at a Jamaica spa last month.
At 9:30 p.m. on July 9, an unknown man, who was posed as a customer, asked the 49-year-old female employee to use the restroom at the Health Foot Spa located at 169-06 Hillside Ave.
As the employee escorted him to the restroom, law enforcement sources said, he forced her into a room and attempted to remove the victim’s clothing.
According to authorities, the victim resisted, which caused the suspect to slap the victim’s face and bite her chest. After hearing other people enter the spa, police noted, the suspect fled the scene.
The incident was reported to the 103rd Precinct; the victim was not seriously injured.
The suspect is described as a 35-year-old Asian/Pacific Islander man with a mustache. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and dark colored pants.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
