Fiend attempts to rape woman in Park Slope: NYPD

Wanted: Police described the suspect as approximately six-feet tall with a medium build.

Police are searching for the scumbag who tried to rape a woman in Park Slope on Sunday, according to police.

The 26-year-old victim was entering her home near Prospect Park West and Garfield Place when the sleaze followed her into the building’s vestibule and exposed himself at around 4:30 a.m., cops said.

One inside the doorway, the perp held the victim by her waist and allegedly attempted to rape her — but the victim fought back, and the pervert fled east towards Prospect Park, according to police.

Police described the suspect as around six-feet tall, with a medium build, and was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.
