NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Police are looking for a man who they say posed as a patron and then raped a woman at a massage parlor in Queens.

The 20-something-year-old suspect went to the parlor at 37th Avenue and Main Street, telling the employees he wanted a foot massage, according to police.

But when he got alone with a 56-year-old masseuse in a massage room, police say he pinned her against a bed and raped her.

The man then allegedly took the woman’s phone but dropped it on the floor as he was fleeing.

The victim was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

 Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
