A serial rapist has turned a popular Flatbush Avenue intersection into his hunting ground.

Police have begun circulating a sketch of the fiend, who’s attacked at least three women near the corner of Flatbush and Bedford avenues in recent months — most recently on Dec. 10.

In two of the three cases, the suspect would follow his victim to her building, police said. Once the woman opened her apartment door, the thug would grab her, force her inside her home, and attack.

Here’s a breakdown of the assaults:

• April 13: The rapist grabbed a 28-year-old woman at her apartment door before forcing her inside. The thug choked and groped the woman before fleeing the 8:55 pm attack.

• May 3: He jumped a 32-year-old woman just as she was closing her apartment door behind her at 2 am. The goon choked his victim, raped her, then robbed her of her cellphone, passport and cash.

• Dec. 10: The rapist was already inside the lobby of his 36-year-old victim’s building at 1:50 am on when he followed her to her apartment door and attacked. The sicko beat and raped the woman before fleeing down the fire escape — leaving her with severe facial injuries.

Cops described the rapist as a dark skinned 5-foot-11 male in his late 20s with a medium build.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is urged to contact the police at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
