A 14-year-old New York City teenager is facing charges after the alleged attempted rape of a woman in a park earlier this week.
New York city police on Thursday arrested a 14-year-old teenager who allegedly tried to rape a woman in a park before they broke free — and then at the woman again as she tried to flee the area.
Researchers announced on Thursday the teen, whose name was not made public, was found in his house in the neighborhood of Bronx park and is faced with the costs of an attempted rape, and sexual harassment.
The police said the 35-year-old victim was jogging in the Bronx River Forest park Monday morning, when she was approached from behind by the man.
The suspect – wearing a white hooded shirt and a black t-shirt, more than that – then allegedly covered her mouth and tried to drag her down.
The woman screamed and fled, only to spot the man while trying to get out of the park.
The police released numerous images of the suspect following the incident, and the originally estimated him to be between 17 and 25 years old.
