    Police are looking for a man wanted in the attempted rape of a 36-year-old woman Friday in Brooklyn.

    He then threw her to the ground and sexually assaulted her with his hand, according to police. The victim resisted and screamed for help, causing a nearby resident to call out from his window and the suspect to flee.

    The victim was taken to Woodhull Hospital where she was evaluated and released.

    Police have released surveillance images of the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
