Police have arrested a man they say trailed a woman into her Bronx apartment building and tried to rape her before the victim’s relative intervened, police said Saturday.

Christopher Thompson, 24, of Mount Vernon, is facing attempted rape charges for the Aug. 14 attack on Elliot Place near Grand Concourse in Mount Eden.

Authorities say Thompson followed the 28-year-old victim down the block and into her building around 9:40 a.m. Once inside, he jumped the woman, threw her against a wall then tried to cover her mouth and pull down her pants, cops said.

A relative heard the victim’s screams and raced over to confront Thompson, who scrambled out of the building. The victim was left rattled with a cut to her face, but was otherwise unharmed. She refused medical attention.

Police released surveillance images of the woman’s attacker the day after the assault. Thompson was identified as the suspect through a Crime Stoppers tip, police said.
