Suspect busted in NYC sexual assault, robbery: cops

Cops busted the creep who sexually assaulted and robbed a 28-year-old woman in Brooklyn last week, authorities said Monday morning.

Adrian Quarless, 37, approached the victim around 1 a.m. July 25 on the steps of a building near North 10th and Roebling streets in Williamsburg, according to cops.

The stranger allegedly tossed the woman down the stairs, molested her and stole her purse — holding her credit cards, cash, and identification — before fleeing on foot.

About 12 hours later, Quarless used the woman’s credit cards at a CVS on 86th Street near Bay Parkway in Bensonhurst, spending $46.21, cops said.

Five days later, the Brooklyn North Warrants Squad caught up to Quarless in the confines of the 77th Precinct, which covers northern Crown Heights, cops said.
