Police are searching for a man who allegedly tried to rape a woman in Corona on April 28.

The suspect approached a 28-year-old woman near Junction Boulevard and 52nd Avenue around 10:35 p.m. and attempted to stick his hands down the victim’s pants, police said. He was unsuccessful and then grabbed her groin over her clothing before taking off on foot.

The woman was transported to an area hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries.

Police describe the suspect as Hispanic, between 30 and 40 years old, and about 5 feet 4 inches tall. He had a goatee and was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, a purple and yellow baseball cap and carrying a backpack, police said.

Anyone with information relevant 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).

Captain obvious- The perps would just find another violent method to inflict upon their victims. Rape is an act of violence. Isn’t that obvious?


I’m sure it wasn’t the first time this guy did this & it won’t be the last .
These attackers should be punished not be given probation or sent to rehabilitation
