Four NYPD detectives showed up to search the penthouse apartment of high-profile lawyer Sanford Rubenstein on the Upper East Side on Sunday, after he was accused of raping a close associate of the Rev. Al Sharpton, sources told The Post.
No charges have been filed against Rubenstein, who allegedly attacked the woman in his posh East 64th Street penthouse in the hours after both attendedSharpton’s 60th-birthday party at the Four Seasons restaurant Wednesday night.
The alleged victim is a Manhattan executive in her 40s who lives in Brooklyn, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
She had attended Sharpton’s star-studded party — with guests including Gov. Cuomo, Spike Lee and Aretha Franklin — with another woman, sources said.
Afterward, she and the other woman went back to Rubenstein’s place for drinks, the sources said. At some point, the other woman departed, and the victim and Rubenstein, who had met through Sharpton, were alone.
