The NYPD released video on April 24 of a man wanted in connection with a recent attempted sexual assault on the streets of South Ozone Park.

Law enforcement sources said the attack occurred at about 10:10 p.m. on April 14 in the vicinity of 131st Street and Rockaway Boulevard.

According to authorities, the perpetrator exited from a white vehicle at the location and approached the 25-year-old female victim from behind. Police said he grabbed her from behind, pushed her against a car and then threw her to the ground.

Once he knocked the woman over, law enforcement sources noted, he attempted to sexually assault her. The woman managed to resist, and the perpetrator eventually jumped back into the white vehicle, which then fled in an unknown direction.
