    Authorities released this sketch of the suspect.

    Police are looking for the suspect who bicycled up to a woman in Queens and punched her multiple times in the face before demanding she perform a sexual act on him.

    Police say the suspect approached the woman just before 4 a.m. on Aug. 25 and started striking her in the face. He then told the victim that he would stop beating her if she performed a sexual act on him.

    The victim then managed to run off. She was treated at Elmhurst Hospital for a broken nose.

    The suspect, who was on his bicycle throughout the entire incident, fled in an unknown direction. He's described as being between 20 and 25 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 155 to 170 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes, a thin build and was last seen on a black BMX-style bicycle.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted online.
