A man has been charged in the attempted rape of a teen girl in St. Albans after police released a video of the suspect.

Police have arrested a man in the strangulation and attempted rape of a 15-year-old girl in St. Albans earlier this year, authorities said.

Tafari Pottinger, 35, of St. Albans, has been charged with attempted rape, assault and strangulation in the July 12 attack, cops said.

The arrest comes just days after police released a video of the suspect.

The victim and the suspect were having a conversation near 109th Road and Farmers Boulevard about 11 p.m. when he started choking the girl until she passed out, police said. He then attempted to rape her before fleeing.
