Cops Hunt Knife-Wielding Rapist

By Liz Goff

Police are searching for a heartless, knife-wielding suspect who raped a woman collecting cans and bottles from trash outside an East Elmhurst apartment building on December 4.

Cops said the 40-year-old woman was sorting through trash outside an apartment building on 83rd Street and 30th Avenue at about 12:50 a.m. on December 4 when the suspect pedaled alongside her on a bicycle and asked if she wanted more cans.

When the woman said yes, the suspect led her behind the building, pulled a knife and attacked her, police said.

The suspect, described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, then fled the scene, heading north of 83rd Street on his bicycle, police said.
