Man tried to rape teen, woman in separate Queens assaults

A creep tried to rape a 15-year-old girl and a 24-year-old woman in two separate Queens assaults, police said Thursday.

The first encounter occurred near 118th Street and 84th Avenue in Kew Gardens as the 15-year-old was walking down the street Thursday afternoon, cops said.

The 15-year-old was able to fend off her attacker and he took off, according to police.

The teen then ran home to her family, who reported the incident at around 1 p.m.

Eleven minutes later, police got a call about a 24-year-old woman who was attacked while on a trail in Forest Park, cops said.

The man managed to rip down her pants, but she fended him off and ran, police said.

Police believe the same man is behind both assaults.

The Queens park has a history of sexual attacks.

In July, a 51-year-old woman fought off her would-be rapist while walking on the Orange Trail.
