NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Police say they’ve arrested the man who forced his way into an 82-year-old woman’s apartment before choking and sexually abusing her.

David Alexander was arrested Friday on charges of felony assault, burglary, sex abuse and criminal obstruction of breathing.

Police say the 29-year-old forced his way into the woman’s Lower East Side apartment in the Rutgers Houses through an unsecure door Tuesday evening.

He then allegedly grabbed her by the neck and groped her breasts and privates.

It’s unclear if the woman suffered any serious injuries in the home invasion and attack.
