As per police reports, the 35-year-old victim—whose identity remains undisclosed—felt something was awry when she noticed a stranger was following her, reported New York Post. Just to put her doubts to test about whether he was indeed trailing behind her, she took a sudden detour and headed west on Stagg Street, only to find him emulate her moves. She even slowed down at one point in time and pretended to skim through some message on her phone, in order for him to walk before her. But, he eventually found his way to her in the next lane, just as she turned down another street.

In no time, the stalker then sped up and pinned her to the ground. The gnawing video shows how the man held her down, reached for her shorts, and grabbed her buttocks before he fled off to the east of the street. The woman, however, managed to hit the stalker on his head before he escaped the scene.

The entire act was captured on the CCTVs around, which was eventually released by cops. The episode didn’t leave the woman with bruises, nor was she in need of hospitalization. It was further alleged that she refused medical treatment, and was clearly uncomfortable in terms of checking into a hospital.

The New York Police Department has launched a probe into the terrifying attack and is on the lookout for the suspect, who is around 5 feet 5 and 165 pounds. Going by his appearances as captured on surveillance video, he seems to have a medium complexion, is medium build with black hair, as cited in The Sun.

Reports further allege that he was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, green camouflage pants, and black sneakers. There haven’t been any witness versions as yet.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
