Man sought in violent sexual assault in the Bronx

CONCRETE PLANT PARK, the Bronx — Police are asking for help in identifying a man they say sexually assaulted a woman in the Bronx.

The incident occurred on Nov. 9 around 9:10 p.m. when a 26-year-old woman was walking on Bruckner Boulevard, entering Concrete Plant Park when she lost consciousness after getting struck on the head, police said.

When the victim regained consciousness, she saw a man on top of her, rubbing his body against hers, said police.

When she began to resist, police said he punched her in the face and bit her lip, causing a deep laceration before fleeing on foot.

The victim was taken to the hospital where she received 150 stitches to her lower lip.

The man is described as about 6 feet 4 inches, 250 pounds, and was last seen wearing a Chicago Bulls hat, a dark-colored hoodie, a dark-colored jacket with white stripes on the shoulders and a logo on the right sleeve, a light-colored book bag, light-colored pants, and multi-colored sneakers.
