Man Tied to 4 Sex Attacks Just Hours Apart in Brooklyn Arrested: Police

The man accused of at least four sex attacks in Brooklyn that happened just a few hours apart has been arrested, police say. 

Dennis Ofuoma, 19, of Brooklyn was arrested Monday, according to police. He is charged with harassment, four counts of burglary and two counts of sex abuse. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

Police say they received a tip and then contacted Ofuoma, who then came forward on his own. 

All four sex attacks happened within just a few hours of each other in Crown Heights, according to the NYPD.

The first attack happened July 12 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 two more attacks happened just a few hours after the previous two.

All the victims were able to fight off the suspect.
