Attempted rape on NYC subway platform thwarted, caught on disturbing video

A creep pushed a 25-year-old woman on an Upper East Side subway platform to the ground and then attempted to rape her in a brazen daytime attack, cops said.

The woman was waiting on the platform for the Q train around 11 a.m. Saturday inside the Lexington Avenue and East 63 Street train station when the man approached her, police said.

Video taken by a witness showed the man on top of the woman before a crowd of bystanders intervened.

“Hey get off her!” the group was yelling at the attacker, cops said.

She suffered minor injuries to her body, but refused medical attention, police said.

Cops said the suspect was last seen wearing sunglasses, a black long sleeve shirt, dark cargo pants and brown shoes. He remains at large.
