Home security camera captures Levittown woman attacked on porch

Posted: Updated:

A home security camera captured a woman getting attacked on her home porch.  

The victim says she was walking to her front door of her home in Levittown Thursday night when a man attacked her.

"He started touching me inappropriately. He grabbed me, he was holding on to me. He was all over me," she says.

When the woman yelled for help, she says the attacker ran off.

By the time police got there, she says her assailant was gone, but she gave the footage to police.

Many neighbors in the area either have security cameras or the Ring Doorbell, which allows homeowners to see what is happening on their doorstep through a phone app.

A neighbor's security camera on a nearby street was able to catch the man taking off in a dark-colored Chrysler.

The victim says she doesn't know the man who attacked her and she's worried he may come back.

"It's a scary world. I have a daughter, and now I'm just going to be looking over both of our shoulders constantly," she says.

Police say anyone with information on the attack should call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
