Police are searching for a man who allegedly tasered and then attempted to sexually assault a 23-year-old woman in a Queens park.

Authorities say the victim was jogging in Forest Park around 7:30 p.m. Friday night when the man grabbed her from behind, threw her to the ground and began to remove her clothing.

A couple walking their dog came upon the attack in progress, startling the man, who then ran off.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for wounds to her neck, officials said.

The woman told police that the man used a taser in the attack and also took her iPhone, officials said.
