A 25-year-old Greenpoint woman walking home was attacked and sexually assaulted at her Diamond Street apartment early Tuesday morning. The woman was dropped off by a cab a short walk from her apartment building after having a few drinks in Manhattan.

The woman says a man followed her up the steps to the building and forced himself on her.
