An attempted attack and robbery took place on Saturday morning in Albany. While multiple area news stations are reporting about the Albany incident and police soliciting for help finding the man, this is the only known photo of the alleged assailant I've been able to find.

A friend of mine posted a photo of the man who Albany Police are looking for after an alleged robbery of a woman took place around 8:30 Saturday morning in the Center Square neighborhood of Albany.

Newschannel 13 is reporting that the incident took place on Saturday morning near Dove and Jay street in Albany's Center Square.  The story reports that the woman was grabbed from behind and pushed to the ground.  While she was on the ground, the attacker attempted to steal her cell phone but was unsuccessful.

After the woman screamed for help, 2 individuals came to her aid and one of them was able to take this picture before the man got away.
