Police asked the public's help Sunday in locating a man who allegedly attempted to sexual assault a young woman in the Richmond Hill section of Queens on Friday morning.

Investigators say the man seen in the above surveillance footage grabbed the 21-year-old victim while she was walking near 115th Street and 85th Avenue around 3:15 a.m. Friday.

Police say the man first threw the victim to the ground.

While the victim was fighting him off, authorities say the alleged attacker was scared away by a passing car.

The suspect is described as being around 5-feet-9-inches tall and approximately 180 pounds.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
