The attempted sexual assault occurred on the 1300 block of Perry Place NW about 7 a.m. Saturday.

The victim was behind a rowhouse in the area when a man came up to her, according to authorities.

The man then knocked the woman to the ground, saying he wanted to have sex with her. He exposed himself soon after and focused his attention on removing her pants.

But he abandoned his plans to take off her clothing and pedaled away on a bicycle. It wasn’t immediately clear why he fled.

Police described the suspect as a:

Hispanic male, approximately 25-years-old, between 5’11” and 6’0″ tall, 175 pounds, and with a full beard. He was wearing a black and gray cap, a black and red plaid shirt, and riding a bicycle.

A man also was stabbed downtown this past weekend, according to authorities.

The stabbing happened on the 1100 block of New York Avenue NW about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

Someone with a knife stabbed the victim during an argument in a park just northwest of the CityCenterDC development, police said. He was brought to a local hospital with stab wounds to his stomach and left arm.
