CROWN HEIGHTS -

One man has been arrested in connection to sexually assaulting a 30-year-old woman on top of a Brooklyn rooftop, and police are looking for three more suspects.

Capsion Nereus, 22, was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with a criminal sex act, sexual abuse, forcible touching, and unlawful imprisonment.

The incident happened Monday around 3 a.m. on the rooftop of a building on Eastern Parkway near Utica Avenue.

Police say the four men can been seen on surveillance video just moments before they approached a 30-year-old woman on the street.

According to police, the men asked the woman if she wanted to smoke marijuana on top of a nearby building.

Police are looking for the three remaining suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
