NEW YORK CITY — A Queens man was arrested for trying to rape a 13-year-old girl in the elevator of the South Jamaica building where she lives, cops said.

Jemmal Bryan, 29, of Laurelton, was busted about 9 p.m. on Saturday for allegedly attacking the girl, a stranger, in the lift at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 18 in the South Jamaica Housing Development.

When they got to the girl's floor, she screamed for help and Bryan ran way, according to cops.

He was arraigned on charges of attempted rape, sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child on Monday and held on $5,000 bail, according the office of Queens DA Richard Brown.
