Police reportedly say a man broke into a New York woman’s house and raped her at knifepoint early Monday morning — all while the woman’s 7-year-old daughter slept in bed next to her.
According to the New York Post, the suspect climbed up the fire escape around 3:30 a.m. and raped the woman at knifepoint.
The 7-year-old reportedly did not wake up during the attack and the woman was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation.
No arrests have been made, according to the New York Post, but police believe the suspect was wearing a black leather jacket with a white t-shirt and stands about 5-foot-9-inches tall.
