BROOKLYN - Two men remain at large after they tried to rape a woman in Bushwick early Monday morning, police say.

The pair approached a 25-year-old woman around 1 a.m. on Quincy Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Broadway, which is just down the block from a police precinct.

Police say one of the men pushed the victim to the ground, and the other tried to pull off her pants.

She fought back and the suspects ran off, according to police.

Over the weekend, another young woman was raped just a few blocks away on Greene Avenue. Police have not said whether the incidents are related.

Police say they have someone in custody for the Friday night rape.
