The police have arrested the man who allegedly tried to rape a woman inside her Woodside apartment last Thursday.

Larry Williams, a 24-year-old Brooklyn native, allegedly followed the 28-year-old victim into her Woodside apartment where he attempted to pull her pants down, according to the NYPD.

The victim was able to fight off Williams, enter her apartment and lock the suspect out. Williams then attempted to push the door open, but was unsuccessful. He then fled the location, according to NYPD.

According to the surveillance photo, there seems to be plenty of parking spots available.

This is a repeat of an earlier error. The incident took place in Ridgewood, not Woodside.


I read in numerous media outlets that this incident took place within the confines of the 104 th precinct which does not cover Woodside.
