Authorities say that the 52-year-old victim was sleeping on a sidewalk on West 31st Street between 8th and 9th Avenue when the suspect approached her. He proceeded to expose himself and then put his genitals in the victim’s mouth, police say.
The victim woke up and resisted, causing the suspect to flee on foot to parts unknown. The victim was taken by paramedics to Lenox Health Greenwich Village Hospital for evaluation.
