While the NYPD is still searching for a man accused of sexually assaulting two women in Manhattan, officials say the man is accused of a third sexual assault incident.
Police say a 26-year-old woman was riding her bike on the Manhattan Bridge walkway earlier in May at around 4:30 a.m. when the suspect on his bicycle approached her. According to officials, he forcibly grabbed the victim's hair from behind, displayed a knife and pulled her to the ground. He then revealed his private parts to the woman before allegedly forcing her to perform a sex act.
The incident is similar to the most recent sexual assault reports in the Central Park West and West 82nd Street area, and the Avenue A and East 4th Street area this past Saturday.
Police released a sketch of the suspect who is still at large.
