The woman called police and, through a translator, told them she got into an argument with 25-year-old Daniel Hernandez-Garcia at a party Sunday night in New York City that continued later at his apartment in the Brookchester development.

She said she had to fight him off for about 25 minutes before finally summoning help, Police Chief Frank Papapietro said.

Hernandez-Garcia, who also needed a translator, is charged with attempted sexual assault, criminal restraint and simple assault.
