The man accused of two sex attacks on two women in Brooklyn last week is now being tied to two more attacks, police say.
All four sex attacks happened within just a few hours of each other in Crown Heights, according to the NYPD.
The first attack happened last Wednesday just before midnight inside an apartment building at Pacific Street and Nostrand Avenue, police said. The man followed a 22-year-old woman, put his hand over her mouth and pressed her up against a wall. He inappropriately touched the woman and told her he wanted sex, the NYPD said.
The victim screamed and fought off the suspect, who then ran away, officials said.
The second attack happened just about an hour later and the woman was able to fight off the man before he fled, authorities said.
Police said Tuesday night he is now connected to two more attacks that happened the same morning, around 2 and 3:30, as the other two attacks.
All the victims were able to fight off the suspect, who is described as being about 6 feet tall with a goatee. He is seen in surveillance footage police released wearing a black shirt and jeans. He also appears shirtless.
