A New York City man wanted for knocking out a 73-year-old homeless woman’s teeth and trying to rape her last week was arrested in Lower Manhattan on Sunday, police said.
Bronx resident Clarence Bradley, 23, approached the woman around 12:45 a.m. in Lower Manhattan on July 7, police said.
When Bradley demanded sex from the woman, she responded: “I could be your grandma,” according to police.
Bradley punched, knocking out teeth and fracturing an eye socket as he tried to rape her, police said. He then allegedly grabbed her purse, which contained $20 and fled the scene.
