IRVINGTON - Police in Irvington hope surveillance video will lead them to the man who violently attacked a woman inside her apartment on Friday.

The video from a nearby grocery store camera was captured just after the assault at around 6 a.m. The suspect is seen wearing a black athletic jacket with white sleeves and a bold emblem on the front.

Neighbors say the man forced his way into the basement apartment, beat the woman in her face, then sexually assaulted her.

On the surveillance video, the man is seen carrying items taken from the apartment.

Investigators say they don't believe this man is connected to three other recent sexual assaults in the Newark Area.
