Police are on the hunt for a suspect wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a 20-year-old female attacked in the stairwell of a residential building near Burke Avenue on Sunday, October 28, at about 8:30 a.m.
After an investigation, the suspect was recently identified as Herbert Williams, a 27-year-old black male, approximately 5-foot-9, 180 pounds, with close cut hair.
Williams allegedly fled the location after the assault and the victim was treated at a local hospital, but police have released a photo of the wanted criminal in hopes someone will step forward and provide information that will lead to his arrest.
The local precinct could not comment on the investigation as the Special Victims Unit of NYPD headquarters in Manhattan is handling the case.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. Calls are strictly confidential. Crime Stoppers has been known to offer monetary rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a violent criminal.
