Cops are looking to identify the man they say tried to rape a 34-year-old woman on a Windsor Terrace street this weekend.

According to police, just before 4 a.m. on Sunday, June 26, the woman was walking in front of 586 16th Street when the man – described as white with curly black hair – approached her from behind, grabbed her, lifted her dress and pulled at her underwear. The suspect then knocked the woman to the ground and struck her numerous times while attempting to  assault her sexually.

The woman kicked the suspect until he became frustrated and fled on 16th Street.

The man is further described as being anywhere from 20 to 30 years old, 5’11” in height and weighing 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt and slacks.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
