Cops released a sketch of the manwho brutally raped a woman in Queens this weekend as she walked to her new job at a grocery store.
The woman was walking alone on a desolate stretch along the Horace Harding Expressway near 168th Street in Fresh Meadows on Sunday when her attacker grabbed her from behind and placed her in a chokehold — causing her to partially lose consciousness — at around 6:20 a.m., police said.
Her assailant threw her to the ground and stripped off her pants, sexually assaulting her on the empty service road, which runs between the Long Island Expressway and a cemetery, cops said.
After the attack, the fiend demanded that the woman clean herself before telling her to take off.
He then hopped in his black or dark blue four-door Honda Civic and sped away. The woman continued her approximately two-mile trek to the supermarket where she had been working for just 10 days before calling her son to tell him what had happened, cops reported.
The suspect, who cops say is between 35 and 45 years old, 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds — last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweater and dark-colored jeans — remained at large Monday night.
