A man is sneaking into apartments in Manhattan and assaulting women, police told WNBC on Tuesday. Police said the man has struck at least twice in the Washington Heights neighborhood. In both cases, they believe he climbed the buildings’ fire escapes and entered the apartments through unlocked windows.
Police released a sketch of the man in an appeal to the public to help track him down. Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS, or 911.
