Police are searching for the monster who tried to rape a woman in Bensonhurst on May 5th.

The creep approached the 39-year-old woman just after 4 am on a Coney Island-bound N train. But after engaging in small talk, the cad grabbed her breasts and the freaked-out woman fled the train at the Bay Parkway station, officials said.

The perv followed her out and on Bay Parkway between 64th and 65th streets, the man came up behind her and grabbed the woman, trying to drag her down. But the woman struggled against him and the pair fell to the ground during the tussle, according to police.

Once on the ground, the ruffian climbed on top of the woman, pinning her arms down as he attempted to force himself on her, but the would-be victim managed to scare off her attacker by screaming for help and the monster fled on Bay Parkway toward 65th Street, authorities said.

Police described the scuzzball as in his 20s, roughly 5-foot-4–5-foot-6, last seen wearing a sweater, white T-shirt, blue jeans, and a backpack.

A police investigation is ongoing.
