GRAMERCY PARK (PIX11) - Police are hunting for a man suspected of raping a woman inside the bathroom of a Manhattan bar early Saturday evening.

Police released surveillance video purportedly showing the suspect, who they believe raped a 23-year-old woman inside the Turnmill Bar, at 119 E. 27th St. between Lexington Avenue and Park Avenue South.

Police say the woman was in the ladies’ room around 7:30 p.m., and when she opened the door to the toilet stall he allegedly pulled her in, grabbed her by the throat, and raped her.

The victim was rushed to North Shore-LIJ Lenox Hill Healthplex for treatment and evaluation, but the suspect managed to get away.

Police need your help, if you have any information on the suspects whereabouts. Call Crimestoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
