Guy tried to rape woman in elevator of her Ditmas Park building

A guy tried to rape a woman in the elevator of her Ditmas Park building on Jan. 1, according to a police report.

The woman started screaming, and when the elevator doors opened, the perv ran off, police said.

Authorities describe the man as around 20 years old, 5-foot-nine and 160 pounds, with short black hair. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket, blue jeans, and black work boots.
