Police: Reward Offered For Man Wanted For Attempted Rape in Hudson Valley


A large reward is now up for grabs as police continue to search for a man who allegedly tried to rape a Hudson Valley woman.


New York State Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hector G. Cruz-Diaz. The 35-year-old from Danbury, C.T., formerly from Putnam County, is wanted for attempted rape and burglary.

On March 20, 2016, troopers were dispatched to a home on Main Street in the Village of Brewster for a reported sexual assault.

An investigation indicated that Cruz-Diaz unlawfully entered a woman’s home and attempted to rape a 24-year-old woman, police say. He fled prior to police arrival.

Cruz-Diaz and the victim knew each other, according to State Police. Cruz is described as being a 5’3” 140 pound Hispanic man.

In July, the Village of Brewster Court issued a warrant ordering the suspect’s arrest.

To be eligible for the Crime Stoppers reward, anyone with information should call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-866-313-TIPS. Tipsters can also visit and leave a confidential tip.
