Police are offering a $10,000 reward in the brutal random sex assault of a 52-year-old mom who was attacked after she dropped her child off at school in Kew Hills Gardens.
“We find this to be an extremely violent and random attack at a time of day that you wouldn’t normally see something like this,” NYPD Capt. Elisa Anders said at a press briefing.
The victim was attacked Monday at about 7:45 a.m. in front of a Queens residential building, police said.
The building’s superintendent found the woman unconscious and covered in blood with her pants pulled down at the bottom of an outdoor stairwell on 72nd Road near Kissena Boulevard, law-enforcement sources said.
The woman had severe trauma to her face and body, and she remains at New York–Presbyterian Hospital Queens, according to sources.
“The victim is still in the hospital. She has not been able to speak to us yet,” said Deputy Chief Michael Baldassano. “She is conscious, but we’re not able to speak to her at this time.”
Baldassano added: “We still believe this was a random attack. We do not believe the victim had any knowledge of who the attacker was.”
On Tuesday, the NYPD released surveillance images of the suspect taken about 10 to 15 minutes prior to the attack nearby the location of the assault.
The department has previously warned those in the area to “remain vigilant.”
