NYC: Creep attempts to rape woman in Bronx building, cops say

A creep attempted to rape a woman and attacked her when she tried to fight him off in the Bronx this week, cops said.

The suspect approached the 37-year-old victim at East 163rd Street and Teller Avenue in Concourse Village around 3 a.m. Monday and struck up a conversation, authorities said.

He then forced her into an apartment building, started to remove her clothes and attempted to rape her, authorities said.

The victim resisted and scratched her attacker in the face, cops said.

In turn, the suspect struck the woman in the face and stomach before bolting with her iPhone, authorities said.

The victim, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was taken to Lincoln Medical Center.

Cops released surveillance footage of the suspect early Tuesday and the NYPD’s Bronx Special Victims Squad is investigating.
