On Saturday 7/22/17, at approximately 4:42 am patrol officers received a call from a sexual assault in the vicinity of 74th Street and 43 Ave. Upon arrival officers were met by a 28 year old female Hispanic who stated that she was walking home from the 74th Street and Broadway train station and when she arrived at her home she noticed a male standing behind her. The male then threw her to the ground and placed his hands over her mouth, while attempting to pull up her skirt. The victim was able to scream for help and the perpetrator ran off in an unknown direction. The case is currently being investigated by Special Victims Squad, if anyone has any info about the incident please contact the 110th Detective squad at 718-476-9318. I will keep you updated on the case as I receive more information. Thank you. - Det. Jeanine Rivera, 110th Pct.
