NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- Police are on the hunt for a man accused of raping a woman at a New York City subway station, and they're hoping a sketch of the suspect will lead to an arrest.
The incident began around 3 a.m. on Thursday, September 1, with an encounter at the 42nd Street/Eighth Avenue station.
Authorities say the 21-year-old victim was standing on the platform when she was approached by a man.

The victim could not recall at which station she was raped.
She was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.
The attacker is described as a dark-skinned male with facial hair and a scar on his forehead.
He was last seen wearing burgundy and gold shorts and black and white Croc shoes.
