Police in Queens have put out a surveillance photo of a man wanted in connection with an attempted rape last week.

Investigators say the man approached a 61-year-old woman near 71st Street and 41st Avenue in Woodside shortly before 11 p.m. last Wednesday.

They say he punched the victim in the face, pushed her to the ground, and attacked her.

The woman was able to fight the man off and he fled the scene up 71st Street.

The suspect is believed to be about 17 years old, five and a half feet tall, and weighs about 165 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.
