NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — The NYPD has released a sketch of the man who allegedly attacked a woman while she was pushing her baby in a stroller on Friday.

The man brandished a broken bottle and attempted to rape Mary Jane Jarman in Fort Tryon Park on Friday, police said.

“A man climbed over the railing with a broken bottle and said come here, come here and I started yelling, screaming, trying to draw as much attention as I could to myself,” Jarman told CBS 2 on Friday.

The suspect has been described as 35-years-old, Hispanic, 5’9″ and 160-lbs. He was said to be wearing a blue thermal shirt and blue jeans at the time of the attack.

Jarman fought the alleged assailant off with a tire pump that she carries in her diaper bag.

“He got me in a bear hug at one point, down on the ground and I just kept hitting and hitting him and he took off,” Jarman said.

Jarman and her son were not injured in the attack.

Anybody with information regarding this incident has been asked to contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
