NYPD: Man Pretending to Operate a Car Service Drives Woman to Forest Hills, Sexually Assaults Her

The police have released a sketch of a man who is believed to have sexually assaulted a woman in Forest Hills (NYPD)

May 18, 2022 By Christian Murray

A woman who got into a vehicle in Manhattan—thinking it was a car service taking her to Brooklyn—was taken for a wild ride to Forest Hills during the early hours Sunday where she was sexually attacked by the driver.

The woman, 33, found herself in the vehicle after attempting to hail a cab on the corner of West 184th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue at around 4:45 a.m. A man pulled over in a gray Volkswagen SUV and asked the victim her destination.

The unidentified driver, however, deviated from the GPS directions to Brooklyn and took her to Yellowstone Boulevard and 62nd Road. The driver then pulled out a knife and grabbed the woman’s crotch.

The woman managed to flee the vehicle. The alleged pervert then left the scene in his vehicle.

The victim was not seriously injured but did suffer minor injuries to her hand and feet. She was transported in stable condition by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/ Elmhurst.

The unidentified male is described as white-Hispanic, 40 to 50-years-old, and was wearing a black jacket and black pants. The police have released a sketch.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
