LONG ISLAND CITY — Police were looking for a man who rode up to a woman while riding a bicycle, hit her and tried to sexually assault her, the NYPD said.
Authorities said the assault occurred Aug. 25 at about 3:30 a.m. After pedaling his bike next to the victim, the man hit her in the face multiple times, saying he would stop only if she performed a “criminal sex act” on him, police said.
The victim was able to run away and the suspect rode away on his bicycle, police said. The woman was treated for a broken nose at Elmhurst Hospital Center, police said.
The perpetrator was a Hispanic man about 20 to 25 years old, with black hair, brown eyes and a thin build, police said. He was about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed anywhere from 155 to 170 pounds, police said.
The incident took place somewhere in the 108th Precinct, which includes Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside.
When last seen, the suspect was riding a black BMX bicycle, police said.
