Cops are looking for the guy in this short, but very revealing, video. They say he tried to rape a 12-year-old girl at about 6 p.m. Monday, January 24, in a building on Hester Street. She was walking to her apartment when she heard someone banging on the door to the building. Unfortunately, she opened the door. The scumbag followed her to the third-floor stairwell and tried to rape her. But he fled and she wasn’t injured. He’s described as white, 25-30 years old, about 5-9, 175 pounds, wearing a blue jacket, brown pants and gray hat.
