Have you seen him?

State Police from the Brewster barracks continue to search for a 35-year-old man who is wanted for a burglary and attempted rape in March.

On Wednesday, state police reissued an earlier alert noting New York State Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the location, arrest and conviction of the man.

Troopers were dispatched on 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 female victim.

Cruz-Diaz, who was an acquaintance of the victim, fled the house prior to police arriving on scene, police said.

The Village of Brewster Court issued a warrant ordering Cruz-Diaz's arrest in July. He's wanted for attempted rape in the first degree (a Class B felony) and burglary in the second degree.

Cruz-Diaz is a Hispanic male who is 5-foot-3 and weighs about 140 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair.

Cruz-Diaz has previously resided in Putnam County.
