A man stalked and raped a woman with a knife point in a disturbing daylight attack at a Bronx park Tuesday morning, police said.
The suspect was waiting outside the woman’s home near Beech Terrace and Beekman Avenue and struck when the 38-year-old victim walked outside at 8:30 a.m., according to the NYPD.
The fiend, armed with a knife, forced the woman to go to St Mary’s Park, where he brutally raped her and stole her debit card, police said.
The rapist ran west out of the park on East 141st Street and then used his victim’s debit card to make a $3 purchase at a nearby deli, police said.
The woman was treated at a local hospital and is in stable condition.
The police do not assume that the woman and her attacker knew each other.
Authorities urged anyone with information about the incident to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or, in Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
