A man attempted to rape two women in Woodside.

A 22-year-old man reportedly assaulted and tried to rape two women on a Woodside street on Tuesday morning.

According to the Daily News, Luis Flores-Guerra allegedly stalked a 30-year-old woman walking along 69th Street and Woodside Avenue at 2 a.m. on Sept. 20. Flores-Guerra threw her to the ground, bit her face and thigh and groped her, police sources told the paper.

Her screams caught the attention of bystanders, who yelled at Flores-Guerra. He fled the scene; the woman was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Though police could not confirm the first assault, an NYPD spokesperson said Flores-Guerra struck again just a little while later, when he assaulted a 27-year-old woman walking in the same area. Sgt. Christopher Miro and Detective Everett Newman were patrolling the crime scene when they witnessed Flores-Guerra assaulting the second victim.

He grabbed and wrestled the victim to the ground and grabbed her groin in an effort to rape her, the spokesperson said. She suffered a laceration to her right hand when she struggled to fight him off but Miro and Newman were able to pull him away. They arrested him at about 5 a.m.

Flores-Guerra resisted arrest and injured the officers in an attempt to flee, according to the NYPD.

He was charged with rape, assault, sexual abuse and two counts of forcible touching.
