A woman walking in Queens was grabbed by a man who tried to rape her, police say.

According to the NYPD, the incident occurred on May 8, around 3 a.m.: The 26-year-old woman was near Harman Street and Seneca Avenue when she was "approached by a male who threw her to the ground and attempted to rape her. The victim fought the male off, and he fled on foot."

Police released surveillance video of the suspect, who is described as being in his teens and having a slim build. He was wearing a light-colored hoodie, camouflage shorts, black sneakers, and was carrying a backpack.

NBC New York notes the video "appears to show him walking up to the front steps of a home, pausing as he takes off his backpack as if he's about to take out some keys -- apparently waiting for the victim to walk past him. He then walks back out to the sidewalk and follows her."
