A 20-year-old tourist from Australia was raped early Sunday morning in New York City after exiting her cab following a visit to a trendy nightclub, MyFoxNY.com reported.

The woman had gotten out of a cab after an apparent argument with the driver. She was then apparently dragged from behind into an alley near Madison Ave. and E. 58th St., which is just blocks from Lavo, the club the woman reportedly left. Police told FoxNews.com that alcohol does not appear to have been a factor.

Police are searching for her attacker, who was described as a black man, about 6 feet, 2 inches tall and in his mid-30s.
