Police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding a man who tried to rape a woman in a bathroom at Union Square Park on Sunday.
Cops said at around 3:15 a.m., a 63-year-old woman was inside the bathroom when a man confronted her and demanded she perform a sex act. The woman struggled as she tried to get away, biting the man’s hand in the process and leaving a cut. The wounded thug then fled the location in an unknown direction.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment for pain. She was reported to be in stable condition and has since been released.
The suspect is described as black, approximately 30 years old with a thin build, short hair and a long goatee. He last seen wearing a green army camouflage jacket, an orange hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and a backpack.
