Police say the primary suspect in a string of attacks on women in Queens had an accomplice in his latest attack.

They say a 20-year-old woman was walking along the Horace Harding Expressway around 2:30 a.m. on June 22 when a man, seen in the above left sketch, walked up behind her and sexually abused her.

He ran off after the woman hit him with her shopping cart.

The suspect is described as 18 to 20 years old, 5-feet-9-inches tall and 150 pounds. He was wearing only dark blue basketball shorts.

After that man fled, authorities say Ibrahima Ragis, 20, seen above right, ran up to the woman, threw her to the ground and tried to rape her.

The victim fought back and Ragis ran away.

Ragis, who is 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs 160 pounds, was already wanted for attacking three different women in Forest Hills, Queens between May 19 and June 3.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
