The video above shows a man moments before he followed a woman into her East Village building and tried to rape her, police say.

The incident happened Monday, shortly before midnight, when the man followed his 23-year-old victim into her residence near Second Avenue. Once inside, the police said, he lifted the woman’s dress and tried to sexually assault her, fleeing only when she began to scream.

The suspect is thought to be in his early to mid-20s, around six-foot tall, and 170 pounds.
