Police are looking for a man believed to be responsible for raping two women in Clinton Hill this month. The suspect—described as being between 25 and 35 years old—reportedly threatened a 42-year-old victim with a gun on Gates Avenue between Classon Avenue and Irving Place at around 5:30 a.m. on March 23. He then allegedly dragged the woman to a vacant lot where he raped and sodomized her.
According to the Brooklyn Paper, a perp who matches the same description pulled out a gun near the corner of Fulton Street and Franklin Avenue on March 16 and forced a 56-year-old woman to walk to a nearby park, where he raped her and struck her in the head with the firearm.
A wanted poster uploaded by Brownstoner indicates the suspect is between 5'8'' and 5'11'' and was last seen wearing a green jacket, dark pants and white sneakers. Police told the Brooklyn Paper the suspect is 6'2'', and was wearing a black hat and a black hooded jacket when he was last spotted.
