Police arrested a Laurelton man in the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl in the South Jamaica Houses, the NYPD said Monday.
Jemmal Bryan, 29, was charged with rape in the early morning attack on Aug. 18 inside an elevator, according to cops.
Authorities believe Bryan followed the teen into the elevator before allegedly assaulting her, police said.
When the elevator reached her floor, the girl screamed and her attacker fled, the NYPD said.
