Nurse helping on coronavirus front line fends off accused rapist

A creep tried to rape an out-of-town nurse who was visiting New York City to help out on the coronavirus front lines, police and sources said Sunday.

The depraved man followed the 32-year-old Upstate New York woman into a Hamilton Heights apartment building on 149th Street and Broadway, Friday at around 9 p.m., according to the NYPD and police sources.

He then punched her in the face and tried to tear off her pants, cops said.

But the brave healthcare worker was able to fight the sicko off — and he fled with her cellphone.

She was bruised up, but refused medical attention.

Police released surveillance photos and videos of the man wanted in the stomach-churning incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
