BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) — The public is getting a better look at one of the two men who sexually assaulted the same woman within the span of an hour and just a few blocks apart in Brooklyn.
Police Thursday night released a sketch of a man who attacked a woman about 6 a.m. Aug. 31 in front of 58 Irving Place.
The culprit pushed her to ground, threatened to use a gun but did not display a weapon, then assaulted her, NYPD said.
Just an hour before that terrifying encounter, the same woman was attacked in front of 187 Gates Avenue -- a tenth of a mile away from the second attack -- by a man who pushed her to the ground then sexually assaulted her. In that case, too, the culprit threatened to use a gun but did not show one.
The new sketch is of the second attacker, described as a light-skinned black or Hispanic male, about 6 feet tall and 170 pounds.
Police released surveillance video of the second attacker Sept. 12 when they asked for the public's help finding the pair.
There’s been no media released about the first assailant who targeted the woman. He’s been described as a light-skinned black or Hispanic male, about 5 feet 7 inches tall who was last seen wearing blue jeans and a red t-shirt.
Anyone with information in the case is urged to call NYPD’s anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-800-577-TIPS.
