The hunt is on for a man who sexually assaulted and robbed an 85-year-old woman who was walking down an Upper East Side street at the crack of dawn Monday.

The beefy man in his 20s put her in a headlock, dragged her down the block and forced her to perform oral sex on him in a townhouse doorway near East 83rd Street and Madison Avenue, according to the Daily News. He also stole a ring from her before he fled.

Cops released security camera images that show the suspect wearing a white tank top and dark shorts during the attack at about 5:40 a.m.

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she was in stable condition, police said.
