Police are looking for a man they say grabbed a 19-year-old woman from behind, held a kitchen knife to her throat and forced her into a Brooklyn apartment building, where he raped her, authorities said Tuesday.
The young woman had been walking near East New York and Ralph avenues around 12:15 a.m. Monday when she was attacked. Once the man had a knife at her throat, he threatened to kill her if she resisted, police said.
The man ran off after the attack in a nearby apartment building. The victim was treated at a hospital and released.
Authorities released surveillance footage of the suspect (above). Anyone with information about him is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
