    Surveillance video caught the suspect using the victim's ATM card.

    Police are questioning a suspect in connection with the brutal sexual assault of a City College student in her Hamilton Heights apartment.

    The 21-year-old victim was robbed and sexually assaulted in the middle of the day Thursday after she was followed home, police said. Her attacker forced himself into her Hamilton Heights apartment, police said.

    Sources tell NBCNewYork Saturday morning that they are continuing to question an individual who was turned into Crimestoppers by a number of people after police released surveillance video showing the suspect allegedly using the woman's ATM card at a nearby deli.

    The man was also captured on security cameras outside and inside the building where the woman was attacked.

    Sources all said they feel like the suspect in custody is likely connected to the attack, but warn the arrest might not be immediate.
