Police have released a sketch of a man believed to be involved in three rapes in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn between 2008 and this year. Apparently all three victims were attacked in buildings near the same corner of Flatbush and Bedford Avenues.
The most recent attack was December 10; according to WPIX, "Just before 2 a.m... the suspect was waiting in the lobby as the 36-year-old victim entered her apartment building's elevator. The man also entered the elevator and followed her to her apartment door, where he forced himself in. The victim's face was severely beaten and she was forcibly raped." The suspect left via a fire escape.
On April 13, 2008, a 28-year-old woman entered her apartment building; the suspect was already in the elevator and followed her into her apartment. He choked her and forcibly groped her over her clothing. And this past May 3, he followed a 32-year-old woman into her home, pushing his way into the apartment as she was closing the door; he choked her and forcibly raped her, also taking her cellphone, passport and cash. All victims were white.
The suspect is described as being a black man in his late 20s, about 5'9" to 5'11" with a thin build and medium to dark complexion. Anyone with information should call NYPD Crime Stoppers.
