By LIZ GOFF

Queens detectives are seeking help from the public to identify and locate a knife-wielding suspect who accosted and raped a 29-year-old woman outside Forest Park on September 23.

Police said the victim was returning home from a late-night appointment with her hairdresser when the suspect grabbed her at knifepoint at about 3 a.m. near the intersection of Woodhaven Boulevard and Park Avenue South.

The suspect put the knife to the victim’s neck and dragged her into some nearby woods where he assaulted her, police said.

The suspect is described as a black male, 6-foot-4, with braided hair and a goatee.

Anyone with information is urged to call the CRIMESTOPPERS Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS. The Hotline is offering a $2,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
