Search for rape suspect in Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police are searching for the suspect who sexually assaulted a woman and stole her cell phone so that she couldn't call for help.

Authorities have surveillance video that shows the suspect dragging the victim into a Brooklyn alley, where he raped her and stole her phone so that she couldn't call anyone.

The suspect approached the 22-year-old victim around 9:45 a.m. Saturday near East 27th Street and Glenwood Road in the Midwood section. The suspect then forced the victim to walk through a building alley, where he assaulted her, according to police.

The crime took place about a block from Brooklyn College. The suspect told the victim he had a gun, but she never saw one.

The suspect also took the woman's cell phone and can be seen throwing what appears to be the phone over a cement wall moments after the attack.

The suspect is a Black man believed to be in his mid-20s, about 5'6" – 5'7" with a medium build and a bald head. He was last seen wearing a dark gray jacket, a white t-shirt, jeans and a blue New York Yankees cap.

Anyone with information in regards is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

    The New York City Department of Health has issued an alert after two babies were diagnosed with neonatal herpes this month after undergoing a ritual Jewish circumcision called metzitzah b'peh.  In this type of circumcision the mohel sucks blood directly from the infant's cut penis.  The infants need to be hospitalized and treated with intravenous acyclovir.

    NYPD probing raising of white flags at Brooklyn Bridge

    NYPD probing raising of white flags at Brooklyn Bridge

    Wednesday, July 23 2014 1:55 PM EDT2014-07-23 17:55:02 GMT
    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
