Search for rape suspect in Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police are searching for the suspect who sexually assaulted a woman and stole her cell phone so that she couldn't call for help.

Authorities have surveillance video that shows the suspect dragging the victim into a Brooklyn alley, where he raped her and stole her phone so that she couldn't call anyone.

The suspect approached the 22-year-old victim around 9:45 a.m. Saturday near East 27th Street and Glenwood Road in the Midwood section. The suspect then forced the victim to walk through a building alley, where he assaulted her, according to police.

The crime took place about a block from Brooklyn College. The suspect told the victim he had a gun, but she never saw one.

The suspect also took the woman's cell phone and can be seen throwing what appears to be the phone over a cement wall moments after the attack.

The suspect is a Black man believed to be in his mid-20s, about 5'6" – 5'7" with a medium build and a bald head. He was last seen wearing a dark gray jacket, a white t-shirt, jeans and a blue New York Yankees cap.

Anyone with information in regards is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

    Everyone hates long lines at security checkpoints and the TSA knows it. Now the TSA is sponsoring a contest to encourage anyone with new ideas about how to make the airport security lines go faster. Often for air travelers, the security checkpoint experience is the worst part of their trip. That's why the TSA turned to the crowdsourcing site Innocentive asking for ideas pledging a total of $15,000 in prize money, with at least one $5,000 award.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.
