Cops seek Park Slope sexual predator

The NYPD needs your help with finding a sexual predator who has been preying on women in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn. 

The suspect is wanted for attempting two rapes within days of each other. Monday night was the most recent attack, cops said.

In that attack, the victim, a 17-year-old girl, said that a man approached her from behind and grabbed her buttocks. He then threatened to sexually assault her, but the girl was able to escape. 

A 50-year-old male witness was nearby, and he was able to detain the suspect briefly before he feld. 

Earlier this month, on Sept. 8, a 26-year-old woman said she was entering her building around 4:30 a.m. when a man followed her inside, exposed himself, and grabbed her waist. They struggled, and she was also able to get away.
