Moment Brooklyn dog walker fights off RAPIST who pulls her to the ground and gets her in a head lock in broad daylight
A Brooklyn woman fought-off a man who put her in a chokehold and tried to rape her after she went out to walk her dog in broad daylight.
The victim, 30, was walking her dog in Bushwick near Woodbine Street and Ridgewood Place around 8:25 p.m. Saturday.
Video released by the NYPD Sunday shows the assaulter sneaking up from behind the victim and puts her in the sleeper hold before dragging her to the concrete.
The victim eventually is forced to give up the leash of her dog in the struggle and the pup ran halfway down the block from the attack.
Her assailant then begins to grind against the victim above her clothing while she’s desperately trying to get away.
Eventually, the victim fought him off and he began to run away eastbound on Woodbine Street.
The victim suffered neck and facial injuries. She originally declined any medical attention but at a later time went to a local hospital for treatment.

Police are still on the hunt for the would-be rapist and have released video and surveillance images of the man they’re looking for.
They describe him as around 30 years old and about 5’8′ with a dark complexion, black dreadlocks, a thin mustache and a goatee.
He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat with a rose on the front, a black t-shirt, black shorts and black sneakers.
The NYPD, who released the video, are currently searching for the attacker and have asked for anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
Overall, crime is up a shocking 39 percent in the Big Apple, according to NYPD’s latest data, published on July 27.
Incidents of rape have gone up about 11 percent from this point last year according to the statistics.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams has promised New Yorkers time and time again that he will crack down on crime and even ran his election campaign on it.
‘We’re going to turn this crime thing around, and when we do so, people are going to really see the progress we’ve made in other parts of the city,’ he said earlier this month.

Crime has skyrocketed in New York City over the past couple of years. So far this year, crime is up 36 percent compared to the same time last year
He also went on to blame the city’s criminal justice system for the increase in violence.
‘It is unfortunate the climate we’re working under … where the entire criminal-justice apparatus has turned away from the public and the rights of the public to live safe in their city,’ he said. ‘We took almost 3,800 guns off the streets, and many of the people who had carried those guns were able to return to the streets.’
The Supreme Court also struck down NYC’s gun laws last month, overturning a 108-year-old law that required New Yorkers to have a ‘proper cause’ to carry a concealed weapon.
The 6-3 ruling reversed a lower court’s opinion, which had upheld the law restricting licenses to carry concealed weapons in public only to those demonstrating ‘proper cause.’
Justice Clarence Thomas delivered the majority opinion, writing that the New York law prevented law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.
