East Village resident recalls attempted rape in First Avenue apartment building

The Post interviews the victim of the attempted rape that took place early Sunday morning inside the victim's First Avenue building. As reported, the 27-year-old woman had fought off the man.

“F--k you! Get the f--k out of here! I know what the f--k you look like!” screamed the feisty fashion-firm employee during the frightening attack that she repelled early Sunday, she recalled.

She told the Post that she unlocked the front door of her building, walked in through the vestibule, unlocked a second door and made her way up the stairs.

And here's what happened next, per the Post:

“It must not have slammed behind me,” she said of the doors.

“I didn’t notice him until I walked into my building and I was in the hallway and I started walking faster,” up to the first landing on the staircase, she said.

“Then I felt his hands on me, and I started screaming.”

“He lifted my skirt,” she said. “As soon as I felt that, I spun around kicking and screaming.

“I had lots of adrenaline, so I was pretty aggressive.”

The fiend immediately backed off in the face of her expletive-filled fury.

“He just started getting out of there. He did try to shush me,” the woman said.

Police describe the suspect as being between 25 and 30 years old, about 5-9 and 170 pounds.

Anyone with information about the case is being asked to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS, by texting TIP577 to CRIMES, or by going to NYPDCrimeStoppers.com.

Good for her for not taking his shit!!! He should be easier to spot now, he's the guy with a shoe print on his face! I still think he's the dorkiest looking attacker ever.

This girl is amazing. Good for her for putting up a fight. She should be proud of herself. I am proud of her, and I don't even know her! I hope they catch this creep soon, and I hope other women will be inspired to fight the way she did.
