Brooklyn Rapist Gives Victim Two Options: Perform Oral Sex Or Get Beaten With a Hammer

Police say a man threatened a woman with a hammer before dragging her into an alley in Brooklyn and raping her early Monday morning. The worst part is he's still on the loose.

According to authorities, about 12:40 a.m. Monday, the victim was walking in the Bed-Stuy section of Brooklyn when she was approached by the suspect. He showed the woman the hammer and demanded a blowjob.

After laying out the options for the 18-year-old victim, the suspect dragged her into an alley and raped her. He then fled on foot.

Police suspect that the same hammer-wielding rapist is responsible for attempting to rape another woman about 11 hours later. In that attack, police say the rapist followed the woman up the stairs in her apartment building and then attacked her with the hammer. Luckily, the victim was able to fend off her attacker.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black guy in his early 20s. He's about 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds. During the attacks, he was wearing a black Rich Yung-brand cap, a hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and a dark jean jacket. He had on red, white and black sneakers, as well as a black North Face backpack and black frame glasses.
