A 20-year-old woman was walking near 185th Street and the Long Island Expressway in Queens around 10:50 p.m. on July 3rd when, she says, the man pictured at left grabbed her, dragged her off, sexually assaulted and robbed her, and fled. As it happens the man was caught on surveillance cameras at a convenience store, from which these stills are taken and from which the victim identified him. He is dressed here as he was during the assault. If you have information as to this man or this incident, NYPD asks you to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477), www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
