Brooklyn detectives apprehended the scooter-riding suspect who allegedly attempted to rape a young woman last month.

Oscar Vallejo, 28, of Skillman Avenue in Williamsburg was booked Friday, July 7, on charges of attempted rape, sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment and assault for the attack that occurred at 10:20 p.m. on June 26 near the corner of Broadway and Macon Street in Bushwick.

According to law enforcement sources, Vallejo allegedly rode up to the location on his scooter, then dismounted and approached the victim, a 21-year-old woman, as she walked through the area. 

Police said the suspect grabbed the woman and told her to be quiet. The suspect proceeded to grab the victim’s skirt, causing her to fall to the ground and cut her hands.

Before he could do any more harm, police reported, the victim ran from the scene. The perverted perpetrator, meanwhile, got back on his scooter and rode off in an unknown direction.

The incident was reported to the 83rd Precinct. The victim did not require any medical attention, authorities said.
