The NYPD is searching for a suspect, shown in the above clip, who reportedly followed a 21-year-old woman into her building early Friday morning before forcing his way into her apartment located near Avenue A and East 12th Street.
Updated 8/2: Police ID'd the suspect as Tyler Lockett.
Per the Post:
He continued behind her as she went to her apartment door — where he forced his way inside and pushed the woman to the ground.
