DNAinfo reports this afternoon that the NYPD is searching for a man they say locked an East Village woman in her bathroom and ransacked her apartment.
According to the report, the man — described as White or Hispanic in his mid-20s — followed the 31-year-old woman into her building's elevator about 1 a.m. on Monday.
The man then apparently broke into her apartment. He left without taking anything. The woman suffered minor injuries.
Police described the suspect as 5-feet-8-inches tall, 170 pounds, with brown eyes, wearing a three-quarter-length jacket, hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and black-rim glasses.
No word on where this took place. DNAinfo has a brief video clip of the suspect.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS
