Knife-Wielding Man Sexually Assaults Woman in Brooklyn Alleyway: Police

Police released video of a man they say pointed a knife at a woman then sexually assaulted her on a Brooklyn street.

The man approached the 24-year-old woman on Louis Place near Atlantic Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 6 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 21, police said.

He then menaced her with a knife and ordered her to follow him into an alley, where he pulled down her pants and licked her genitals, authorities said.

The suspect then turned her around and fondled her breasts and buttocks before stealing her cell phone and running off, police said.

"I think to me the scariest thing was thinking that we were asleep in our beds as this young girl was being harassed," college student Talisa Ramos said. "It's pretty disconcerting."

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
