Cops on Wednesday cuffed the man whom they suspect raped a 59-year-old woman at gunpoint near the Prospect Park Parade Ground earlier this month.

Police slapped the 28-year-old suspect, who lives in Queens, with charges that included two counts of rape, strangulation, sexual abuse, and unlawful imprisonment, according to authorities.

The victim told police the man on Nov. 18 grabbed her on Parkside Avenue near Parade Place at 4 am, warning her he was armed with a knife and a gun.

The suspect then shoved the woman against a parked van before dragging her behind a bench, where he raped her, according to cops.

Following the rape, the man allegedly smashed a window of the van and then entered it with the victim, whom he unsuccessfully tried to sexually assault again while inside, according to authorities, who said the guy stole $10 from the woman’s purse and fled after his failed second attempt.

Wrong again Hillary, we enjoy freedom of speech in this country. You can spew your stupidity at any time. It was true even during the Obama mistake. If you don’t like that freedom then move to a Iran biyatch! And take that Huma thing with you!
