WOODSIDE, Queens — A man has been arrested after an attempted rape incident where he was seen on video forcibly grabbing a woman in Queens.

The 21-year-old victim was able to break free and run away.

Prusa has been charged with attempted rape in the first degree, unlawful imprisonment in the second degree, attempted assault, criminal possession of a controlled substance, sexual abuse, stalking in the fourth degree, unlawful possession of marijuana, and harassment in the second degree.
