After releasing photos and video of two Ridgewood attempted rape suspects earlier this week, police made an arrest in the attack.

Two men have been charged with attempted rape after attacking a teen in Ridgewood earlier this week, according to police.

The 18-year-old victim was walking near Putnam and Seneca avenues at about 2:50 a.m. on Wednesday when the two suspects came up behind her, and one of the men choked the girl and covered her mouth with his hand, cops said.

The second suspect tried to steal her purse, but she was able to hold on to it. The first suspect then attempted to sexually assault her, but both men fled when someone passed by them, authorities said.

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

Franclin Velazquez, 21, of Brooklyn, and Jorge Maldonado, 28, of the Bronx, have both been charged with attempted rape and sexual abuse, police said. Maldonado has also been charged with assault.
