A man who attempted to attack a woman on Eastern Parkway near Bedford Avenue on Friday was arrested by police.
The man grabbed the female from behind, and pulled her into an alleyway, and attempted to attack her.
Her screams alerted passerby, who scared the perpetrator away.
The 71st precinct responded immediately to the location and located the perp a couple of blocks away, police said.
The attacker was arrested for attempted rape.
He was also identified as the perpetrator caught on surveillance video of an attempted attack the day before on the Subway near Atlantic Avenue.
Police have notified that contrary to rumors spread on social media, the victim of the crime is not from the Lubavitch community.
