DAILYKENN.com -- A male was video recorded allegedly attempting to rape a 25-year-old woman.
The suspect is identified as Jose Reyes, 31.
"Police said Reyes didn’t know his victim and that he confessed to the attempted rape," according to nypost.com.
The incident occurred on the 63/Lexington St Q subway platform in Manhattan at about 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 30, 2020.
The race of the victim is not known, video evidence suggests she may be white.
On a historical note, it was an attempted rape that led to the infamous Tulsa riots in which white residents burned neighboring Greenwood in response to ongoing ratchet crime and violence.

A Bronx man was arrested Sunday for allegedly trying to rape a woman on an Upper East Side subway platform in a disturbing daytime attack that was filmed and ultimately thwarted by fellow New Yorkers, police said.
Jose Reyes, 31, is accused of pouncing on the 25-year-old woman around 11 a.m. Saturday inside the Lexington Avenue and East 63 Street F train station.
“This heinous and horrendous act was interrupted by a good Samaritan who observed Mr. Reyes’ behavior and got him to cease . . . while subsequently videotaping the incident,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison told reporters.
