PROSPECT PARK SOUTH, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Police are looking for two men wanted in the attempted rape of a woman in Brooklyn.

Around 2 a.m. May 25, near Tennis Court and Ocean Avenue, two men followed a 25-year-old woman, then one pushed her against a parked car, kissed her and fondled her over her clothing.

According to the New York City Police Department, the victim ran into a nearby residential building, but the two followed her into a courtyard and into another building.
