Police are looking for a man they say sexually assaulted a woman at knife point in a Bushwick apartment building in the early morning hours of Oct. 15.

The sicko followed the 22-year-old victim into her Evergreen Avenue apartment building shortly after midnight, then approached her from behind with a kitchen knife and forced her to the fourth-floor landing, cops said.

The low-life then snagged the victim’s purse and forced her to commit a “criminal sex act” on him before fleeing the building, authorities said.

Authorities have released a sketch of the suspect, who they describe as a man in his mid- to late-20s standing between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-2 tall, and weighing 180 to 190 pounds.

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers’ website at or by texting their tips to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach reporter Allegra Hobbs at or by calling (718) 260–8312.
