A man is arrested and charged in connection with an attempted rape in Queens.

Prosecutors say 27-year-old Elvis McKenzie faces several charges including attempted rape and assault.

They say that on June 2, McKenzie followed the 53-year-old victim into the elevator of her apartment building in Astoria.

He then allegedly punched and choked the woman, before trying to sexually assault her.

The woman was able to fight him off and McKenzie ran off.

If convicted he faces up to 15 years in prison.
