A keycard is required for gaining access to the lobby, but police said he "piggybacked" on a building resident by walking in after he or she unlocked the door.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, followed the 42-year-old woman into the elevator where he groped and kissed her. She tried to get away, but he pulled her into the stairwell, where he straddled her and choked her.
When she screamed, she said he ran off. The victim suffered scratches to her neck and was treated at Bellevue Hospital.
