The police have released a video of a man they say was trying to rape a woman in upper Manhattan yesterday morning.

According to the NYPD, a 30-year-old woman was walking her dog near West 212st Street at 6:55 a.m. when a man grabbed her from behind and apparently tried to remove her clothing. The victim was able to fight off him off.
