The NYPD is looking for a man they say sexually assaulted a young woman in Bushwick about a week and a half ago.
The woman was walking near Madison Street and Patchen Avenue about midnight Nov. 9, police said, when she was grabbed from behind and dragged into the nearby Reinaldo Salgado Park.
Police said her attacker threw her on the ground and punched her over and over.
The assailant stole $60 from the 20-year-old woman, then pushed her up against a fence and sexually assaulted her before running off.
The victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition, police said.
Police described the attacker as a 5-foot-9 man with medium complexion and light hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing blue sweatpants and a dark hooded sweatshirt, police said.
The NYPD is asking that anyone with information contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). All calls are confidential.
