Police are asking for help finding a man wanted in connection with an attempted rape in Queens.

Investigators released the above sketch of the suspect.

They say the man depicted in the sketch broke into a woman's apartment in Ozone Park Friday morning and demanded that she take her clothes off at knifepoint.

Police say the woman was able to wrestle the knife away from the suspect, but they say he then pulled out a second knife.

The victim suffered cuts to her wrist and finger before the suspect fled.

He's described as being in his early 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 180 pounds.

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.
