Cops are looking for an alleged rapist who attacked two women, 20 minutes apart, on the night of February 25 in the area of 82nd Street in Bay Ridge.
In the first attack, at about 11:20 p.m., a 44-year-old woman opened her building’s front door, and he pointed a gun from her, forced her inside, took her cell phone and money, hit her in the face with the gun, and tried to rape her.
Twenty minutes later, he struck again.
He approached a 22-year-old woman in the same area and pointed a gun at her. He took her to the rear of a building, where he sexually assaulted her and took her cell.
The guy’s described as a white male, 5-6 to 5-9, 150-170 pounds. He was wearing a dark windbreaker and a blue hoodie, over tan or gray pants, cops say.
Tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips at nypdcrimestoppers.com or text info to 274637 (CRIMES), entering TIP577.
