The man accused of sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman inside an East Sixth Street apartment building early Sunday morning is also wanted for forcibly touching another woman on Dec. 16, police said.
According to published reports, the previous attack occurred in a building along FDR Drive. Gothamist reports from the NYPD report: "a 19-year-old woman walked into the elevator 'when the suspect entered behind her and grabbed her buttocks and breasts and attempted to forcibly kiss her. A struggle ensued and the victim fled the elevator and the building where again, the suspect grabbed her buttocks before fleeing the location.'"
The police released this video from the East Sixth Street incident … from a building between Avenue D and the FDR…
The Daily News describes the suspect this way: "dark skinned, around 25 years old, approximately 180 pounds, and wearing a dark baseball cap during both attacks."
Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online.

Fucking stop this predator!
How many attacks do there have to be before we get an honest complete description of the suspect? Now he's described as 'dark skinned'. Thanks. So helpful. We sacrifice public safety at the alter of political correctness. Why post this here? The cops are evil right? Don't want them profiling dark skinned males right? Outrageous.
Is this real life??? (re: PD's refusal to identify suspects by race)
Its more of a media thing. They don't ever want to even be perceived as racist therefore they don't provide accurate and complete descriptions of suspects. Unless they are white of course. But about 95% of the time this is the incomplete description they give the public. Being honest about crimes and who commits them is now racist. Happy 2015. It's going to be a wonderful year in NYC.
Ch. 2 news at noon provided a photo from the surveillance tape and a full, including race, description of the alleged assailant.
Well I haven't seen that. Everything I've seen does not have race. It took 2 attacks to get that out of ch 2. But I still see gothamist, ev grieve and other tv not giving race all the time
More people today are of a mixture of races and witnesses are not always correct when the have have to describe the attacker.
