A Queens man who police say is the "Lovers Lane" rapist wanted for a string of attacks in city parks dating back to 2003 will be arraigned on rape charges in Brooklyn Criminal Court this afternoon, a spokesman for Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes said. Alvin Henry, 30, of Laurelton, Queens was busted yesterday near Prospect Park, the site of a June 15 attack. Henry, an Olympic sprinter who competed for Trinidad and Tobago in the 2000 Olympics, is believed to have committed the June 15 rape and four others, police said. Numerous new outlets dubbed the suspect in the attacks the "Lovers' Lane" rapist because the he targeted women who just had romantics trysts with male companions in the city parks.
