The NYPD is seeking information on a suspect who allegedly tried to force his way into a woman's apartment near Seventh Street and Avenue A this past Friday night at 11.
Here's the info that the NYPD provided...
It was reported to police that on Friday October 25 at approximately 2300 hours, the individual followed the 19-year-old female victim into a residential building in the vicinity of East 7 Street and Avenue A. Once inside the building, they entered the elevator together.
When the victim got off the elevator and walked to her apartment door, the individual approached her from behind and covered her mouth. He then wrapped his other arm around her waist and demanded she open the door to her apartment. The victim refused and yelled out for help. When one of the victim's neighbors opened her door to see what was happening, the individual released the victim and ran to the elevator; he fled out of the building in an unknown direction.
The individual is described as a male, black, 20 to 25 years old, 6'2"; he was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a white hooded sweater, black shorts, and black sneakers.
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. All calls are strictly confidential.
As the posters along Seventh Street note, there's up to a $2,500 reward for information on this case.
