Have you seen him? New York State Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a 35-year-old Danbury man who is wanted for a burglary and attempted rape in Brewster, N.Y.
Troopers were dispatched March 20 to a residence on Main Street in the Village of Brewster for a reported sexual assault. An investigation indicated that Hector G. Cruz-Diaz of Danbury unlawfully entered the victim’s home and attempted to rape a 24-year-old woman, police said.
