Cops are looking for a creep who sexually assaulted a woman underneath a train overpass in Jamaica early Sunday morning.

Authorities say that at 2:40 a.m. on Aug. 18, a 22-year-old woman was in the vicinity of Tuskegee Airmen Way and 157th Street when an unknown man dragged her under a nearby Long Island Rail Road train trestle. The suspect proceeded to strike the victim on the head with a hard object and sexually assaulted her.

The suspect then fled the scene in an unknown direction. The victim was treated for a contusion to the back of the head at a nearby hospital.
