Investigators are looking for a man accused of raping a masseuse at a Flushing business on Saturday. The man apparently posed as a customer before attacking the woman.
The incident took place around 2:30 p.m. on April 27th, in a commercial building near 37th Avenue and Main Street. According to the NYPD, a man "requested a foot massage" and once he was inside a massage room with a 56-year-old female employee, "he pinned the victim against the bed and raped her."
The suspect also "took the victim's cell phone but he dropped it on the floor as he fled the location," police say.
The victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
Police released footage of the suspect, who is described as being 20-30 years old and 6 fee tall who was last seen wearing a light blue long sleeved shirt, blue jeans, black/white sneakers, and he had on a light colored backpack.
