Burglar tried to kiss Hillcrest victim: Brown

HILLCREST — A Hillcrest man was charged with burglary and attempted sexual abuse after he allegedly muscled his way through the door as the victim was entering her home and tried to kiss her, a spokeswoman for the Queens district attorney’s office said.

Rajiv Bhasin, 22, of 167-07 81st Ave. in Hillcrest, allegedly grabbed the woman by her arms and pushed her inside her Hillcrest home between 11:54 a.m. and 11:55 a.m. May 11 when he tried to kiss her, according to the criminal complaint.

The woman then told Bhasin to get away from her and pushed him, but he allegedly continued to grab her arms while saying, “No, no, you are so pretty,” until the woman’s roommate appeared, causing Bhasin to flee the home, the complaint said.

Bhasin was arraigned May 12 and remanded without bail on charges of attempted sexual abuse and burglary by Queens Criminal Court Judge John Zoll, the spokeswoman said.

Bhasin is next scheduled to appear in court May 26, the spokeswoman said.
