Police say they've arrested a suspect in the rape of a woman who was allegedly taken to a secluded area at gunpoint in Queens and attacked last month.
Police said the suspect, 24-year-old George Persaud, approached the 40-year-old victim in South Ozone Park sometime between midnight and 6 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 30, and showed a fake gun. The suspect then forcibly took the woman to a secluded area, where he raped her, police said.
Persaud, who had a distinctive tattoo across his chest that says "Only the strong survive," and a nautical star on his right hand, was arrested Wednesday and was being interviewed at the 112th Precinct station.
