NYPD Crime Stoppers

Police are searching for a man who allegedly pushed his way into a woman’s Manhattan home then raped and robbed her Thursday morning.

“The NYPD said the unidentified man knocked on the door of the Kips Bay residence, near the intersection of East 30th Street and Third Avenue, around 11:45 a.m.,” PIX 11 reported.

The suspect said he was there to deliver a package, but when the 27-year-old victim opened her door, police said he shoved his way inside:

He immediately choked the woman until she was unconscious, authorities said. Once the victim regained consciousness, the unknown man raped her, according to police. After the sexual assault, the man forced the woman to give him her credit cards, debit card and pin number before fleeing the location, officials said.

The woman dialed 911 and was transported to a nearby hospital where she received treatment and was later released.
