Suspect Hits Woman in Back of Head in Attempted Rape, Police Trying to Identify Him

JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens

New York police are looking for a man they say tried to rape a woman in Queens.

The incident happened just before 5 a.m. near 74th Street and 37th Avenue in Jackson Heights. Investigators say the man approached the 35-year-old victim from behind, pulled her backwards, and punched her repeatedly in the back of the head.

Officers say the suspect then dragged the victim to a fence where he tried to sexually assault her, but she fought him off. Police say the man ran off with her purse.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video trying to keep his pants from falling down as he ran.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man between 30-35 years old and is approximately 5’5″ with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a white jacket, a green shirt, black shoes and light-colored pants.
