Suspect charged in Queens sex attack
NEW YORK -- A suspect has been arrested in connection with an attempted rape in Queens that was thwarted by an ex-Marine who yelled at the would-be rapist after hearing screams.
Police said Friday that 41-year-old Kenneth King was arrested on charges of attempted rape and attempted sex abuse in Wednesday's attack. Information about his lawyer was not immediately available.
Police say the victim was standing on the street when the suspect forced her into the brush near the Cross Island Parkway, threw her to the ground, and attempted to sexually assault her.
Brian Teichman had just dropped off his daughter at a baby-sitter's home when he heard the woman's screams and yelled at the suspect who then fled the scene.
