Police looking for a suspect they said climbed a fire escape, sneaked into a pregnant woman’s Bronx apartment and forced her to touch his genitals, NYPD said on Wednesday.
The suspect climbed through a kitchen window in the apartment near Taylor Avenue at around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 6, according to police.
Once in the apartment, the suspect forced the woman to remove her clothes, but did not rape her when he saw that she is pregnant.
The suspect then forced the 20-year-old, who had only moved into the apartment that day, to touch his penis. Authorities said he then masturbated and left via the fire escape.
