Carlos Paute

Detectives have identified Carlos Paute (DOB 7/16/94) of White Plains as a suspect in the sexual assault of a 27 year old female who said she was attacked around 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the area of Water Street, near the White Plains Train Station.

The suspect allegedly attacked the woman, who was not badly hurt, coming from behind. According to several reports, he grabbed her and tried to drag her into a weeded area, then fled on his bicycle. The area of the attack is a poorly lit path often used by commuters as a shortcut.

The White Plains Police Bureau conducted an investigation into the case. MTA Police assisted in providing a sketch artist, who rendered a composite drawing of the suspect which was released to officers and the media.

Paute is currently employed as a construction worker. On Tuesday, Detectives located Paute at his residence and he willingly accompanied them back to police headquarters. Numerous search warrants were executed to secure further evidence in the case. Paute has been charged with Rape 1st and held for arraignment.

The investigation is ongoing.
