Police have released new video of a man wanted for rape in the borough.

Detectives say he attacked a woman behind a Norwood Apartment building on Tuesday.

They say he struck up a conversation with the woman and eventually lured her to a secluded area where no one could see them.

Police say the suspect is about 28 years old, balding and has brown eyes.

They say around 4 p.m. Tuesday the man saw the 37-year-old woman walking alone by Dekalb Avenue and East 208th Street.

That's when police say he led her to a deserted area behind one of the apartment buildings, punched her in the face, raped her and then ran off.

The victim went to North Central Bronx Hospital for her injures.

Police are now asking for anyone with information to give them a call.
