NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A sex predator is on the loose after a horrifying attack at a Brooklyn subway station last week, police say.

A 19-year-old woman was on the platform at the Cypress Hills J line station early last Tuesday when the suspect grabbed her by the hair.

Police say the man dragged the teen by her hair and demanded she perform a sex act on him.

When she refused, he attempted to throw her onto the subway tracks, according to police.

The victim was able to fight off her attacker and escape.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect this weekend and they’re pleading for anyone with information to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
