Police are looking for a man they say tried to rape a woman in Brooklyn.

Police say this man attacked a 20-year-old in Prospect Heights just after midnight yesterday.

They say he came at her from behind as she walked along St. Mark's Avenue, grabbing her around the waist and covering her mouth.

He threw her to the ground and tried to rip off her clothes, but ran off when she fought back.

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 www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
