Police are on the hunt for a man they believed attempted to rape a Broadway actress in Central Park.

The 30-year-old woman had been out drinking after a Monday night performance.

She met the man and the two sparked up a conversation.

Cops say the two later went for a walk in Central Park.

That’s when he attacked her.

She fought him off with her purse, which he snatched before running off.
