Cops are searching for a man who tried to sexually assault a woman in Queens Sunday night, the second attack in the area in a week.

Cops say the man attacked the woman, 23, after she exited a bus near South Conduit and Edgewood avenues in Laurelton about 7:30 p.m. She was able to fight him off an escape.

Police said they don't have a suspect, but they believe the man is in his 20s.

Another 23-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in Laurelton in the same area last Wednesday.

Cops wouldn't say whether the two attacks are linked, but only that they're investigating the cases.
