Wanted: Police are searching for this man in connection with the sexual assault of a woman inside her Prospect Heights apartment building.

Cops are hunting the creep who sexually assaulted a woman inside her Prospect Heights apartment building on Sunday.

The victim, 27, told police she first spotted the lowlife loitering outside her building near Underhill Avenue and St. John’s Place at 11:45 p.m. on April 21, before he followed her inside the building and then up to the floor where she lived, cops said.

That’s when the sleazebag launched his assault, pushing her to the ground and sticking his finger inside of her, before she managed to fight him off, according to a spokesman for the police department.

The reprobate fled afterwards, while paramedics arrived and treated the victim, cops said.

Investigators have released surveillance footage of a suspect they’re seeking on sex abuse charges, who they’ve described as five-foot, seven-inches tall, and weighing between 175–200 pounds.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone tips in at (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach reporter Colin Mixson at or by calling (718) 260-4505.

Reasonable discourse

GW from Brooklyn Heights says:
Journalism shouldn't say the exact details of the sexual assault. It's re-victimizing the victim.
