Police said Thursday that they are looking to question a man in connection with the weekend rape of a Columbia University Graduate student in Hamilton Heights.

The Manhattan special victims unit is looking to question William Roberts. He's described as being 30 years old, 5’ 5” tall and 170 lbs.

Police are not yet calling Roberts a suspect.

Police say an attacker, who had been lurking in the elevator looking for a target, followed the 23-year-old woman into her building on Hamilton Terrace at around 9:30 p.m. Friday and forced his way into her apartment, where he raped her and held her hostage for 19 hours.

The attacker allegedly slit the woman's eyelids, and burned her with hot water and bleach.

The next day, investigators say he set the apartment on fire while the victim was still inside and fled the scene. The victim was able to escape. She remains hospitalized with serious, but not life-threatening injuries.

Police say there is no indication that the attacker knew the suspect.

Anyone with any information can call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.


Been gone. Back now. Black Harlem is the ice cube on the sidewalk we call gentrification.
