WHITE PLAINS — Police are searching for a suspect who they say sexually assaulted a woman by the Metro-North station Wednesday around 11:30 p.m.

Investigators say the young woman left the train station when she was approached by a man on one of the foot paths.

According to the White Plains police chief, he allegedly threw her to the ground and attempted to sexually assault her. While police will not say what exactly he did to her, they say he walked away on his own.

The victim proceeded to walk home and call the police, who advised her to go to Westchester County Medical Center to treat her minor injuries.

The victim in this case did not know her attacker, but she described him to police as a Hispanic male, around five foot six with a thin build, dark complexion, dark hair and wearing dark clothing. The White Plains Police Dept. is now reviewing multiple security cameras in the area.

While there have been no other incidents recently just like this one, the police department is advising commuters to be alert and travel in well-lit areas.
