Police are on the hunt for a robber and attempted rapist who attacked a woman on a Coney Island-bound F train on Wednesday night — a shocking echo of a series of attacks that have terrified Windsor Terrace and the South Slope for six months.
The victim of the new attacker told cops that she was on the subway between the Prospect Park West/15th Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway stations at about 2:25 am when the creep grabbed her throat and flashed a knife.
He not only stole her purse, iPhone and cash, but then ordered the woman to remove her underwear before exiting at the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop.
No sexual assault was committed.
Cops describe the suspect as a stocky 5-foot-10, 200-pound man, 40 to 50 years old, bald and with scruffy facial hair. He was last seen wearing a maroon sweater, dark pants and work shoes.
The attack occurred in the 72nd Precinct — where cops are struggling to nab at least two sex fiends in a spree of sex attacks.
This incident appears to be unrelated — except in how it has horrified local women.
Gail Guerre, 34 of Park Slope, was shocked to hear about the subway stickup — especially in light of the recent community rally against the South Slope rapist.
“I thought things would calm down,” she said. “I’ve been paranoid since the attacks, trying to relearn some self-defense moves. I had no idea this was now happening on the train.”
