A 34-year-old Bronx man has been arrested on charges of attempted murder and rape after allegedly strangling a woman and leaving her unconscious in an apartment.
Jason Dickerson is the suspect accused of violently assaulting the 27-year-old woman in the Davidson Avenue building in Fordham Manor in the mid-afternoon of March 11th. Police said he was arrested Tuesday.
Officials have said the woman was strangled around 2.30pm that day, strangled until she was blacked out and then sexually assaulted. The suspect ran off after.
Authorities say the woman received cuts to her nose and mouth. She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
It was not immediately clear if Dickerson had a lawyer.
