NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The woman was walking her dog near West 212th Street when the man grabbed her from behind and tried to pull off her clothes, said police.

The 30-year-old victim was able to fight off her attacker and he fled the scene at about 7 p.m. on Sunday.

He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue denim shorts and a brown or red baseball cap.
