Police are looking for a man who they say tried to rape a woman on the subway last week.

The woman told police the man exposed himself to her on a northbound 3 train around 4 p.m. last Thursday.

She says when she moved to the next car, the man followed her, forced her onto a seat and attacked her.

The man ran away at the 148th Street station.

Police say the suspect was wearing distinctive Nike sneakers, seen at left, during the attack.
