WINDSOR TERRACE - Police are continuing the search for a man who attempted to rape a woman on 16th Street in Windsor Terrace over the weekend.

Neighbors say the area is normally quiet, and they knew something was wrong when they heard the victim's loud screams around 3 a.m. Sunday.

A witness told News 12 earlier this week that he rushed to the street, but by the time he arrived, the woman had fought off her attacker, who fled.

Police released video of the incident Monday in the hope that it would generate leads and an arrest, but the suspect remains at large.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
