An accused serial rapist was in court Saturday on charges that he raped two woman and a 15-year-old girl in Brooklyn this month.

Authorities say Dexter Bell, 23, engaged the victims in conversation, then lured them to isolated locations and raped them.

Bell was arrested earlier this week after investigators released surveillance video they say shows Bell walking on a sidewalk in East Flatbush on April 11, near where a 15-year-old girl was raped that day in an apartment building. 

The first rape took place on April 4, when a 25-year-old woman was attacked in Canarsie. A week later, police say Bell raped a 19-year-old woman in the driveway of a private home in East Flatbush.

Bell has been charged with three counts of rape and faces numerous other charges.
