    A man police say is responsible for multiple attacks in Brooklyn struck in the borough again on Friday, attacking a woman as she left a subway station, according to a report.

    The Daily News reports that the suspect attacked the victim soon after she left the Prospect Ave. station in Park Slope at 8:30 p.m Friday.
    He grabbed the woman from behind as she walked on Prospect and Sixth avenues. She kicked and screamed, and the suspect ran off.
    The suspect hasn't been suspected of an attack since June, when police say he attacked a woman in the vestibule of her Sunset Park apartment building, the News reported. 
    He is described as Hispanic, 25 to 30 years old, 5-feet 7, and 165 pounds, and is suspected in five attacks since March, in Park Slope, Sunset Park, and Bay Ridge. Police told the News he may be responsible for a sixth attack.
    On June 4th, a woman was raped by a man who followed her home from a Dunkin Donuts in Sunset Park. A man who was seen on surveillance video later turned himself in for questioning, and was charged with rape and arraigned after he was picked out of a lineup.
    But that suspect, William Giraldo, was later found to have an alibi, and some police sources told the Daily News they think he'll be released by a grand jury.
    Police are now eying this multiple-attacker in that rape.
