An unidentified man posing as a customer at a Downtown Flushing massage parlor pinned down an employee and raped her on Saturday, according to the NYPD.
Cops say the man entered the massage business, located near 37th Avenue and Main Street, at around 2:30 p.m. on April 27 and requested a foot massage. Once alone with a 56-year-old female employee in a massage room, the suspect allegedly pinned the woman against the bed and raped her.
The suspect also took the victim's cell phone but dropped it on the floor as he fled the business, according to 109th Precinct cops. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.
The suspect was captured on surveillance video and is described as a 20-30-year-old black man, 6 feet tall, last seen wearing a light blue long sleeved shirt, blue jeans, black/white sneakers, and a light-colored backpack.
