BROOKLYN - Police say two men assaulted and attempted to rape a woman while she was walking along the street in Brooklyn.

It happened Wednesday around 2:15 a.m. on Tennis Court and Ocean avenues in Flatbush.

Police say two men followed the 25-year-old woman along the street, then one of the suspects pushed her against a parked car, kissed her neck and touched her genitals over her clothing.

The victim managed to push the suspect off of her, according to police, and ran inside a nearby residential building where she was once again followed and assaulted by the two men. 

Police say the two suspects pinned her up against the door inside the lobby and tried to pull the woman’s pants off, but she fought back.
