Police have arrested a would-be rapist accused of dragging a woman off the street into the woods near a Queens highway before she was saved by an ex-Marine.

A suspect was arrested and charged Friday with attempted rape, according to the Daily News.    

Ex-Marine Bryan Teichman heard the woman's screams and yelled at the suspect, who then fled the scene.        

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 at about 9 a.m. 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 News he had just dropped off his daughter at the baby-sitter's home when he heard the woman's screams.
