The police are searching for a convicted sex offender who allegedly punched a 53-year-old woman in the elevator of her Astoria apartment building before attempting to sexually assault her.

The police said that Elvis McKenzie, 27, followed the woman into the building, located near 8th Street and 27th Ave, at 11:30 p.m. on Monday, and then attacked her in the elevator.
