The police were looking for a Pacific Island man with a mustache who is a suspect in the attempted rape of a 49-year-old woman who worked at the Health Foot Spa on Jamaica.

He was described as being around 35 years old and was last seen wearing a blue shirt and dark colored pants, according to police.

The man allegedly posed as a customer and pretended to want to use the bathroom, but instead attacked the victim who escorted him to the restroom, according to the NYPD.

The suspect forced her into a room and attempted to remove her clothing, but when she fought back, he slapped her in the face and bit her chest, according to police.

As other people entered the establishment, which is located at 169-06 Hillside Ave., the suspect fled, police said.
