Man Wanted for One Rape, Five Attempted Rapes in Brooklyn
|A police sketch of the suspect.|
In March, the man pushed a woman down to the ground in South Slope but she broke free, sustaining minor injuries. Similar incidents happened twice in May; the suspect threatened the victim at knifepoint in one of them. Then there was the rape on June 4. Then on June 25, the suspect attempted a similar crime to the June 4 rape, following a woman into her apartment vestibule at 4 a.m., but he fled when she screamed.
The most recent crime was on Friday, August 26, at around 8:45 p.m. The suspect grabbed the victim, a 28-year-old woman, from behind as she walked down the street, groping her breasts. He tried to force her to the ground but when she screamed, he fled on foot in an unknown direction.
