NEW YORK (PIX11) – Police arrested a man in the violent sex attack of a woman inside a Midtown bar last Friday.

Manhattan resident Ricardo Lambert, 34, faces one charge of attempted rape after police say he choked and tried to sexually assault a 34-year-old woman inside the Flaming Saddles bar on 9th Ave.  She lost consciousness during the attack outside the bar’s restroom, police say, at which point he allegedly threw her to the ground and ripped off her underwear.

He ran from the bar after Flaming Saddles security guards discovered what was happening.

The Wild West-themed Flaming Saddles was named the Best Gay Bar in New York by New York Magazine in 2012.
