There is new information Wednesday as police search for a child predator in Queens.

Police have released new surveillance video of the suspect's car.


The suspect told the 12-year-old victim she could meet Nicki Minaj to lure her into his car. The suspect then assaulted her.

The attack happened Sunday afternoon in broad daylight in South Ozone Park.

The victim managed to escape and called 911 from a friend's house.

She was treated at Queens General Hospital and released.

Police also released a sketch of the suspect and a video of his car.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
