Police have released new surveillance video of a suspect in three rapes in Brooklyn earlier this month.

The video shows the man walking on a sidewalk in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, on April 11, near where a 15-year-old girl was raped that day in an apartment building near Midwood Street and Schenectady Avenue. 

The suspect is wanted in two other rapes in Brooklyn in which he allegedly engaged each victim in conversation, then lured her to an isolated location and raped her.

The first rape in the pattern was April 4, when a 25-year-old woman was attacked at about 9 p.m. near Albany Avenue and Fenimore Street. A week later, police say the suspect raped a 19-year-old woman in the driveway of a private home near Remsen Avenue and Farragut Road in the morning.

The suspect is described as being in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 to 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a green camouflaged jacket, pants, boots and a baseball cap, possibly with a Knicks or Yankees logo.

Police previously released surveillance video of the suspect at a B12 bus stop near Albany Avenue captured just prior to the alleged rape of the 15-year-old girl. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
