Police hope surveillance video will help lead to an arrest in an attempted rape in Brooklyn over the weekend.

Police say the man followed a 32-year-old woman into an apartment building in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 8 a.m. on Sunday.

Once inside the vestibule, he attempted to sexually assault the victim, but was fought off.

The man fled the scene with the woman's cell phone.

The suspect is described as being 5'11" tall and weighing 195 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.
