The NYPD is seeking a would-be-rapist who dragged a woman off the street into the woods near a Queens highway.     

Police say a 31-year-old man who heard the woman's screams yelled at the suspect who then fled the scene.     

Local media identified the good Samaritan as ex-Marine Bryan Teichman.     

Police say the woman was standing on the street when the suspect grabbed her from behind and forced her into the brush near the Cross Island Parkway Wednesday morning.     

The victim told police the man threw her to the ground and attempted to sexually assault her.     

Teichman said he felt he did what anyone would do in that situation.     

He told the Daily News he had just dropped off his daughter at the baby-sitter's home when he heard the woman's screams.
