Bronx Rapist on The Lam, Attacked Tourist in East Tremont Hotel Room
A tourist was raped in her Bronx hotel room on Wednesday -- and cops say the man in this video is the perp.
The woman, 33, told the New York Police Department that she chatted briefly with the suspected scumbag on the train at East 14th Street and Union Square.
She then got off the train and returned to her East Tremont hotel.
Around 4 a.m., the alleged assailant knocked on her door.
When the victim opened the door, he forced his way into the room and assaulted her.
He's described as a black male around age 30. He was wearing a grey Chicago Bulls hat, white tee shirt, and red shorts.
He's got "Tiffany" tattooed on the inside of his left forearm and "Ivan" on his right shoulder/biceps area, along with a scorpion in that same location.
