The attack happened around 8 a.m. on East 210 Street in the Norwood section of the Bronx, police said.
Surveillance footage released Saturday shows a man pulling a woman through the door of a building, putting her in a headlock, and throwing her to the ground. He then repeatedly punches her.
The man, identified as 25-year-old Michael Rosa following his arrest Sunday, also tried to take off the 27-year-old woman’s clothes, WCBS-TV reported, citing police.
Rosa fled after the woman fought back, police said. She was taken to a hospital and treated for bruises on her face and arms.
Rosa faces charges of attempted rape, strangulation, sex abuse, forcible touching and assault, the station reported.
