serial rapist still targeting asian women in flushing

Here's a follow up on a story from last month... but unfortunately, it's not a good follow-up. In New York, police are asking for the public's help in catching an alleged rapist who has attacked four women in Queens since late last year: Police Seeking Sexual Assault Suspect In Queens.

All the reported incidents have taken place in the 109 Precinct, based in Flushing, and all of the victims have been Asian women. The most recent incident happened last Tuesday evening at 11:40pm on Colden Street. The victim was an Asian woman in her early twenties.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his thirties standing five-foot-five, 140 pounds with black hair. Police have released the above sketch and two videos that apparently show the alleged attacker:

Authorities believe the same suspect is responsible for three other different known assaults since last September:

The first incident happened on Sept. 22 of last year at 10:10 p.m., at the corner of 28th Street and 34th Avenue in Flushing. The victim, an Asian woman in her late thirties, sustained minor injuries from her hands and legs in the assault.

The second incident, occurred Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m., at the corner of Sanford Avenue and 147th Street. The victim was an Asian woman in her late twenties, who suffered facial injuries in the attack.

The third incident happened on Bowne Street on Feb. 27 at 3:45 a.m., the victim, an Asian woman in her mid-twenties, did not require any medical assistance, according to police.
To all my people in the area, please stay vigilant and safe. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips at the Crime Stoppers' website or by texting their tips to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577. All callers will remain anonymous.
