Police have released surveillance video of a man believed to be targeting women in a series of sexual assaults in Flushing, Queens -- and the latest attack was just this week.
The assaults, dating back to September 2010, have become a pattern, police say. In each incident, the man approaches the victim from behind and sexually assaults them, then flees.
In the latest incident on Tuesday, the suspect attacked a 24-year-old Asian woman at about 11:30 p.m. at 44-35 Colden St., according to police.
The previous assaults all occurred in Flushing, during late-night and early-morning hours. All the victims were Asian women in their 20s and 30s.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 30s, about 5'5" and 140 pounds, with black hair.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or to log on to nypdcrimestoppers.com. Tips may also be texted to CRIMES with the message TIP577.
