Police say Amauri Azcona, 17, attacked a 28-year-old woman near the corner of Park Row and Beekman Street shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday.

The woman screamed and caught the attention of a nearby construction crew, which police say caused the attacker to run away.

The victim received bruises to her neck.

Azcona is facing charges of attempted rape, sex abuse, assault and strangulation.
