Police are searching for a man who attempted to rape a woman in Corona.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who pummeled a 33-year-old woman before attempting to rape her on a Corona street last month.

On May 31, at approximately 3:45 a.m., the suspect grabbed the female victim by the throat at the intersection of 42nd Avenue and Warren Street and demanded that she take him to her apartment. When she tried to fight him off he punched her in the mouth and stomach several times, police said.

He then threw the woman to the ground and inserted his fingers into her vagina, according to officials. When the victim yelled for help the suspect fled eastbound on 42nd Avenue.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet, 5 inches to to 5 feet, 7 inches and last seen wearing a checkered shirt and dark-colored pants.


Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers at their website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
