A 24-year-old woman was robbed and then sexually abused near the corner of Schermerhorn and Bond street this weekend, police said.
The victim told investigators that she was passing the corner just before 4:30 a.m. on July 19 when two black males grabbed her.
One of the men reportedly motioned as if he had a gun and demanded that she hand over her purse and jewelry.
After she handed over her property, the accomplice, believed to be between 5’9” and 5’11” with a “stocky build,” grabbed her and forced her to a secluded spot nearby, where the sex assault took place, cops were told.
Police said that the attack was reported shortly after it took place.
The victim helped NYPD Special Victims investigators cobble together a sketch, which they began circulating in the community on Wednesday.
Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this attack to come forward.
Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
