Man gets 6 years in prison for attempted rape

An ex-con from Greenburgh is headed to prison again for attempting to rape a young woman at SUNY Purchase.

Dante Beamon, 26, will spend the next six year behind bars. He admitted to busting into the student's room last year, then trying to get her to strip and have sex with him.

The victim was able to get away and call for help. Investigators say Beamon didn't know the woman, and was not a student at SUNY Purchase.
