A Woodside man has been arrested after he allegedly tried to rape a woman on a Flushing street early Sunday.

Wilson Kim, 41, was arrested Thursday for attempted rape, assault and other sex crimes for the Oct. 23 incident, police said.

Kim, of 56th Street, allegedly attacked and tried to rape a 47-year-old woman while she was walking in the vicinity of 147th Street and Roosevelt Avenue at around 2 a.m., according to police.

Kim allegedly pushed the woman to the ground, touched her inappropriately, and then attempted to pull down her pants. He also made sexual comments to her, police said.

The attack was stopped when a good Samaritan walking by intervened, causing Kim to flee the location on foot, police said.

The victim suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene by EMS, the NYPD said.
