Police released security video of the suspect who allegedly raped a 56-year-old worker at a Flushing spa on Saturday afternoon.
Law enforcement sources said the attack occurred at 2:30 p.m. on April 27 inside the unidentified parlor in the area of 37th Avenue and Main Street.
According to authorities, the perpetrator walked into the business pretending to be a customer and asked for a foot massage. The female employee then walked him to a massage room for the service.
Once they were inside the room, police said, the suspect pinned the woman against a bed and raped her. He then took her cellphone, but dropped it as he fled the scene.
The incident was reported to the 109th Precinct. The victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
Cops described the suspect as a black man between 20 and 30 years of age, standing 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing a light blue long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans and black-and-white sneakers, while carrying a light-colored backpack.
