    A 14-year-old boy faces strangulation, burglary and other charges in connection with a sex attack on a Brooklyn woman as she walked into her apartment building earlier this month.

    Authorities say the boy ambushed the woman from behind on a stairwell in her East Flatbush building Dec. 16 and sexually attacked her. He stole her phone and cash from her purse before fleeing.

    Police arrested the boy, who lives in Westchester County, on Thursday. He faces a bevy of charges, including criminal sex act, sex abuse, criminal obstruction of breathing, strangulation, criminal trespass and grand larceny.

    The woman's condition after the attack was not available.
