2008_07_heywood.jpgYesterday, a Canadian tourist, staying at a friend's apartment at The Heywood on Ninth Ave. and West 26th, was followed into the building and attacked around 4 a.m. The Post reports the suspect "followed her into the apartment and choked her into unconsciousness," and the victim "awoke minutes later to find her clothes partially removed, a small amount of cash, jewelry and a cellphone missing." But the attacker was gone; police tell the Daily News they think he may have been scared off by the victim's friend waking up. A resident in a neighboring building said, "There is supposedly 24-hour security but at 1 or 2 in the morning they're not there. They're sleeping downstairs and the door's not locked." The police are reviewing surveillance footage.
