Police seek man who sexually assaulted woman in Patchogue

Police are on the hunt for a man who beat, robbed and sexually assaulted a woman in Patchogue.

Authorities say a 24-year-old woman was heading from her house to a friend's home at around 3:15 a.m. Saturday when a man grabbed her from behind and dragged her into a wooded area. There, they say he beat, robbed and sexually assaulted the victim.

Police today released a photo of a man who they believe could be the suspect.

Authorities say they step up patrols in the area each summer and believe this was an isolated incident. They say they hope someone will recognize the man in the picture and come forward.
