Dec. 11, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a man who assaulted a female worker at an Elmhurst spa Wednesday and then tried to grope her.

The suspect walked into Massage Spa, located at 80-20 Roosevelt Ave., just before 11 p.m. and asked the worker for a massage, police said. When the 57-year-old female employee began the massage the man allegedly got aggressive.

The suspect grabbed the woman by the neck and forcibly pushed her onto the ground. He then attempted to force her to perform a sex act on him, police said.

The man struck the woman multiple times about her face when she resisted, police said. He fled the spa on foot and the victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital for bruising to her face and bleeding in her right eye, police said.

The unidentified man is described as light-skinned, in his 30s, 5 foot 8 inches tall, with a medium build and facial hair. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweater, dark-colored Adidas sweatpants with white stripes on the sides and white and black sneakers, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Brooklyn man charged with manslaughter, DWI, for Astoria collision that killed his wife: DA

New details have emerged in the case against a Brooklyn man who allegedly crashed into several cars in Astoria last week while driving drunk, and then drove off in the wrecked vehicle to a residential block in Maspeth four miles away with a gravely injured passenger. The passenger turned out to be his wife, who later died, and the boozed driver told investigators that the couple was being followed when the collision occurred, according to the criminal complaint.

Rey Perez, 27, of Caton Avenue in Flatbush, was arraigned on Friday in Queens Criminal Court on charges of manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter and other crimes for speeding through stop signs last Thursday morning, crashing into another vehicle and two parked cars, before speeding from the scene to Maspeth where he sought help for his wife, 29-year-old Bridget Enriquez, who later succumbed to her injuries.
