An NYPD officer secures the uppper East Side crime scene where an elderly woman was allegedly robbed and assaulted early this morning
Police are hunting for the fiend who sexually assaulted and robbed an 85-year-old woman out for a stroll on the upper East Side Monday.
Photos of the muscle-bound brute released by police show him in a white tank top and black shorts. Images taken from a surveillance video show the hulking suspect dragging the victim down a sidewalk. The woman's image is blocked by a white oval.
Police and witnesses say the man's arms are covered in tattoos.
Surveillance video of the 5:40 a.m. attack shows the sicko pretending to talk on a cell phone before putting the elderly woman in a headlock on Madison Ave. and E. 83rd St., a doorman said.
The man dragged the victim along E. 83rd St. and down the stairs of a sunken stoop of a 5-story luxury brownstone. Then he forced her to perform oral sex on him and stole a ring before fleeing, police sources said.
The doorman said a colleague came to the woman's aid and took her back to his building, where they called police.
Meanhwile, the fleeing perv stopped another doorman arriving to work at a nearby building, police sources said, asking him for the time and directions to the 86th St. subway station.
The victim, who weighs no more than 100 pounds and lives close to the crime scene, was disheveled and bruised from being dragged, witnesses said. She was taken to a local hospital in stable condition, officials said.
The suspect is described as a muscular Hispanic man in his 20s, about 5-foot-10.
Police spent hours searching for witnesses on surrounding streets, near Central Park, and the area around the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Doorman Bill Albers, 54, who works at a building across from where the attack happened, was shocked to hear about it.
"It's bad," he said. "A guy like that should be brought up into the woods and be fed to the animals."
