A Broadway actress was attacked and nearly raped by a shirtless man in New York’s Central Park yesterday morning, according to police.

The victim, 30, had been drinking in a bar after performing in a production in the city on Monday night

It is believed she may have had a conversation with the suspect before she was assaulted.

However, as the woman made her way home she was set upon inside the park near West 64th Street and West Drive at about 2.40am.

 Despite the woman being drunk, she fought off the suspect by hitting him over the head with her purse, a police source said.

After a struggle, the man snatched her pocketbook before fleeing the park.

  1. The focus of this article is that the woman was “drunk” in fact, it is the opening point of the article.
    The fact that the victim had been drinking is of no relevance.
    The message you are sending to society and in particular women is “don’t drink because men will try and rape you.”
    When you should be saying to men “DON”T RAPE WOMEN”.

  2. I agree with Emily. There are 12 sentences in this story. Four sentences mention that the woman was drinking or drunk – that is 33% of your story. Stop the presses – A woman had a drink.
