    Woman Pushed to Ground, Raped on Manhattan Street: NYPD

    Authorities are looking for a man who pushed a woman to the ground as she walked in East Harlem earlier this week and raped her.

    Police say the 39-year-old woman was walking near East 116th Street and Second Avenue shortly after 1:30 a.m. Monday when the suspect, unknown to her, sneaked up from behind and grabbed her.

    She went to a hospital Wednesday for treatment.

    The suspect is believed to be about 6 feet tall; he was last seen wearing a mid-length gray jacket.

    The investigation is ongoing.
