View Comments (


    Police have released new surveillance video from East Flatbush, Brooklyn, of a suspect wanted in three rapes in two weeks. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.

    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.
