Person of interest named in mugging, assault of German tourist

Police have named Keon Robinson, 28, as a person of interest in the violent mugging and sexual assault of a German tourist in Harlem, authorities said Monday.

The 31-year-old tourist was walking home to her Airbnb rental when a creep approached her on W. 146th St. near Frederick Douglass Blvd. and demanded her purse at about 2:50 a.m. Thursday, officials said.

Shocking surveillance footage shows the attacker delivering crushing blows to the woman’s head — knocking her teeth out — as she tried to protect herself.
