NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police have made an arrest in the attempted rape of a woman in a Bronx park earlier this week.

Cops in the 48th precinct say they have arrested a 14-year-old boy at his home in the Bronx.

The teenager now faces harassment and attempted rape charges for Monday's attack on a 35-year-old jogger.

She said the suspect came up from behind, put his arm around her chest, and tried to drag her off the running path at Bronx River Forest Park around 7:45 a.m. The woman fought back and ran.

When she ran into the suspect again at the other end of the park, she used her phone to take a picture leading to the arrest.
