QUEENS — A masseuse fended off a naked man who tried to pull down her pants and rape her at a Flushing massage parlor where she worked Sunday, NYPD officials said.

The 48-year-old woman was in the massage parlor near 40th Road and Main Street about 7:30 a.m. when the man came in and disrobed, police said.

The suspect, who can be seen in police video released Monday, jumped onto the masseuse and tried to pull down her pants, police said.

But then she fought him off and with the help of another colleague chased him away, police said.

The victim suffered cuts to her legs, but refused medical attention at the scene, police said.

The suspect hadn't been arrested as of Monday morning, police said.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
