A woman was pummeled and nearly raped in her apartment building by a sex fiend until her son saved her
A brave Brooklyn teen saved his mom from being raped by a sloshed sex fiend in the hallway outside the apartment, police said Thursday.
The 6-foot-4 suspect first approached the 36-year-old woman at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at a Williamsburg bodega at Havemeyer and South 3rd Street and tried to strike up a conversation, according to police.
She wasn’t interested and walked away. But the man followed her on Driggs Avenue to her building, then told her he knew someone who lived there and asked to be let inside, sources said.
The woman allowed the man — who reeked of alcohol — to go inside, and he attacked her in the hallway outside her apartment.
He punched her in the face and ripped off her clothes as she screamed for help, sources said.
That’s when the victim’s 16-year-old son emerged from their apartment and scared the would-be rapist off.
The victim refused medical attention at the scene, authorities said.
The suspect was wearing glasses and has a medium build and a goatee.
