ELECTCHESTER — A 67-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at knife point in the 107th Precinct last month, police said.

On Feb. 27 at about 2 p.m., a 67-year-old woman was about to enter her apartment when a man came up behind her and asked her for a glass of water, according to the NYPD.

The woman agreed and invited the man in, and he assaulted her once inside, police said.

The 107th Precinct includes the neighborhoods of Fresh Meadows, Cunningham Heights, Hilltop Village, Electchester and Pomonok.

The man is described as a 5-foot-9, 160-pound black man anywhere from 45 to 65 years old, according to the NYPD, which released a sketch.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
