BROOKLYN -

A Brooklyn man has been identified as the person wanted for robbing and sexually assaulting a German tourist in Harlem, police say.

Keon Robinson 28, of Bed-Stuy, a level three sex offender, is wanted for the May 4 attack.

The incident happened as the 31-year-old woman was walking home around 3 a.m. 

Surveillance video shows Robinson attempting to take her bag before knocking her to the ground and sexually assaulting her. 

Back in April, Robinson was seen walking into a Home Depot in the Bronx where police say he used a stolen debit card that he removed from a woman he punched in the face. 

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