The police are searching for a suspect who tried to rape a woman inside her Woodside apartment yesterday.
The suspect followed the 28-year-old victim to her apartment where he attempted to pull her pants down, according to the NYPD.
The victim was able to fight off the suspect, enter her apartment and lock the suspect out. The suspect then attempted to push the door open, but was unsuccessful. He then fled the location.
The incident occurred at 9:15 am. The police did not disclose the location of the apartment.
The suspect is described as a black male in his late teens or early twenties, 5-foot-nine-inches tall, weighing 150 pounds.
There were no reported injuries.
Police released a video of the suspect last night and are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
