Police said the suspect grabbed the woman from behind, pulled her pants down, threw the victim to the ground and punched her in the face before a Good Samaritan stepped in to stop the attack.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male between 25 and 30-years-old, around six feet tall, and weighing nearly 230 pounds. He was last seen wearing a reversible hooded fur coat with black jeans and white sneakers.
