New York City police have released a sketch of a man they say was responsible for the brutal rape of a tourist in New York City.
WABC reported on Tuesday that the 20-year-old rape victim was intoxicated and was not able to give police an exact location of the crime.
The publicity over the headline of a tourist being raped in New York City is the last thing business leaders want to see. The story made headlines as far away as the UK. That story is here.
The incident happened just after 3:30 a.m. on Sunday in Midtown Manhattan. Police say the woman was grabbed and dragged into an alley.
The New York Post reports that the rape victim could not remember the exact location of the assault but again, police say this may have been because the victim was intoxicated. She was only certain that it happened near the Lavo restaurant and nightclub. The Lavo is one of New York City’s best-known nightclubs, frequented by many A-List Hollywood stars.
The suspect is described as a black male, 35-40 years old, about 190 pounds, and a height of about about 6-foot-2.
The victim was treated from the hospital and no suspects are in custody.
Police are asking the public for any information about this sexual assault.
