A suspect was nabbed Thursday for beating, robbing and sexually assaulting a jogger in Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park.

Kenneth Miller is charged with sexual assault and robbery.

"I didn't do nothing, bro," Miller, 31, said as he was lead out of the NYPD Special Victims stationhouse in handcuffs to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court.

He's accused of of attacking the 35-year-old jogger in the Inwood Park about 10:50 a.m. Saturday.

Miller allegedly confronted the victim inside the park and dragged her by the hair behind a tree near Henry Hudson Parkway and Tryon Place, cops said.

He punched her multiple times in the face and pulled out a knife before molesting her and stealing her watch and cellphone, according to police.

Miller, who was wearing dark clothes, a hoodie that read "Honor thy gift" on the back and a mask at the time of the attack, fled on a motorized scooter, cops said.

The woman suffered injuries to her left eye, left arm and right leg, cops said. Medics took her to a nearby hospital.

Cops released surveillance footage of the suspect Sunday.

Detectives conducted an extensive video canvass of the area and managed to track Miller to a building that he frequented. Once there, detectives were able to learn his identity.

NYPD Warrant Squad officers arrested Miller Thursday morning. He has 16 prior arrests but it was not immediately disclosed if any of those crimes involved sexual assault.

Miller lives in Washington Heights, according to cops.
