Police released new footage Wednesday night of the bike-riding brute who sexually assaulted a jogger at Pier 40 in the West Village last month.
Law enforcement sources said the attack happened at 6:10 a.m. on March 27 as the 39-year-old woman was running northbound along the jogging path in the vicinity of Clarkson and West Streets.
According to authorities, the creep pedaled up to the victim from behind and knocked her to the ground. He then dismounted his ride and began choking the woman.
Seconds later, cops said, he sexually assaulted the victim, then forcibly removed her cellphone. Police said he then hopped back on his bicycle and fled in an unknown direction.
The incident was later reported to the 6th Precinct. EMS brought the victim to a local hospital for an evaluation, as well as treatment of bruises and pain.
The video that police released on April 6 shows the perpetrator riding his bicycle in the area of West Street and Charles Lane moments before the March 27 attack.
Cops described him as a man with a beard and a dark complexion believed to be 20 to 30 years of age, standing about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
