Police release sketch of man wanted for attempted rape

Police have released a sketch of a man wanted for at least two crimes in Brooklyn.



Officials say the suspect allegedly assaulted a woman back on Aug. 29 while she was walking home. They say he grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the ground and touched her.



Police say he was not wearing any clothing during the attack but the victim was able to free herself and run away. 



Surveillance video from Aug. 12 allegedly shows that same man walking around with no clothes on in the same neighborhood on Avenue J and East 52nd Street.



If anyone has any information they are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
