Police have arrested a man in connection with the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl inside an elevator last week. 

Jemmal Bryan, 29, of Jamaica, Queens faces a charge of second-degree rape in the Aug. 20 incident. 

Police say Bryan followed the victim onto the elevator at the South Jamaica Housing Development about 7:30 a.m. Aug 20. Then, while the elevator was moving, he assaulted her.

Once the elevator reached the girl’s floor, she screamed for help. That’s when Bryan ran away.

It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
