Police were searching Sunday for a man wanted for sexually assaulting a woman that morning right by NYPD headquarters in Lower Manhattan.
Authorities say a man in his 20s attacked a 28-year-old woman near the corner of Park Row and Beekman Street shortly before 5 a.m.
The woman screamed and caught the attention of a nearby construction crew, which caused the suspect to run away.
Police say she was taken to the hospital with bruises to her neck but is expected to be OK.
Officials say the attacker was wearing a red jacket.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
