The New York City Police Department (NYPD) arrested a man suspected to be the individual caught on video allegedly attempting to rape a woman at a Manhattan subway station, numerous sources reported.

A woman was grabbed from behind at around 11 a.m. Saturday while waiting for a train on the subway platform at the Lexington Av-63 Street station, the NYPD said according to NBC New York. Police on Sunday arrested Jose Reyes, who they allege exited the same train as the victim at the station.

After grabbing the woman, the man threw her down and got on top of her. A crowd of bystanders noticed what was happening, and the suspect ran off. The victim reportedly suffered minor injuries.

“This heinous and horrendous act was interrupted by a good Samaritan who observed and got him to cease his behavior while subsequently videotaping the incident,” Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said according to NBC.
