Police have nabbed a Queens man who broke into the bedroom of two young girls in Borough Park early Tuesday in what investigators are treating as an attempted sexual assault, according to the NYPD.

Isaac Hernandez, 38, broke into the rear ground-floor bedroom through an unlocked window at about 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday and climbed in bed with a 14-year-old girl, police said.

When the girl woke up and started to scream, he clamped his hand down on her mouth, according to cops. Her 10-year-old sister, who shares the bedroom with her, then woke up and started to scream too.

Hernandez then fled the home and sped off on a bicycle, but not before leaving behind his underwear, a police source said.

The girls’ parents were home at the time.

Hernandez was charged on Wednesday with attempted rape, burglary and endangering the welfare of a child, police said.
