NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding the man who they said broke into a woman’s apartment in the middle of the night and raped her at knifepoint as her daughter slept nearby.
Police said the woman and her 7-year-old daughter were both asleep when the assailant entered at 3:30 a.m. on Monday.
They said it’s unclear how the suspect gained access into the apartment in Manhattan’s Little Italy. They said there were no signs of forced entry.
Police on Tuesday released a sketch of the suspect and video from a surveillance camera showing him walking down the street after the alleged attack. They ask anyone with information about him to call police.
