Man Trying To Rape Woman Caught On CCTV Footage. Police are searching a man who dragged a young woman into a driveway before trying to rape her in front of passing motorists.

The man followed the 22-year-old off a bus near a supermarket in Dagenham, east London, before grabbing her from behind and throwing her to the ground.

CCTV footage shows him lowering his jeans and exposing himself as he attacked the woman, shrugging off her desperate punch and shouts for help as he tried to rape her.

But a passing driver stopped to help, and the man ran off in the direction of nearby Wood Lane, Scotland Yard said.
