The man is wanted by the Queens Special Victims Squad for the alleged sex crime that took place in the vicinity of Northern Boulevard and 110th Street at approximately 12:40 a.m.

According to law enforcement sources, the perpetrator approached the victim as she walked through the area. While confronting her, police reported, he pulled out a knife, then dragged her into a nearby alley.

Once in the alley, cops said, he forcibly removed the victim’s necklace and headphones. The deviant then ordered the victim to perform a sexual act on him.

Following the sexual assault, police reported, the perpetrator took off on foot and was last seen heading southbound along 109th Street.

The attack was reported to the 115th Precinct. EMS brought the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

Later on Saturday, the NYPD released a surveillance camera image of the suspect but he was wearing a facemask. The newly released photos show the man maskless.

Police described him as having a medium complexion and build, standing about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and wearing a light green hooded sweatshirt, black jogging pants with reflective stripes on the side and gray sneakers.

Anyone with information can call the Queens Special Victims Squad at 718-520-9277 or 646-610-7272.
