A 12-year-old girl lured to a Midtown office with the promise of a job was instead attacked by a man who attempted to rape her, police said Thursday.

The girl told police she went to an empty office inside 28 West 44th St. at about 5 p.m. Tuesday and met a man in his 50s. The man had met the girl earlier in the day and offered to get her a job in an office, according to police.

Once the two were inside, the man pulled out a pair of scissors and attempted to rape the girl, police said.

The victim was able to run away and alert authorities, police said. The suspect fled the building through another exit.

The suspect is bald and appeared to be in his 50s, police said. He was wearing black shorts, a dark long-sleeved shirt and carrying a backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
