Wanted: Police are searching for this man in connection with three separate crimes in Prospect Park.

Cops are hunting a fiend suspected in connection with not one, not two, but three heinous crimes in Prospect Park, including a brutal rape earlier this month.

A 24-year-old woman told police she was strolling along the park’s East Drive March 11 at 4:30 p.m. when the lowlife allegedly forced her to perform oral sex.

A few days later on March 13, the scumbag allegedly attacked a 26-year-old woman near the same location at 2:30 p.m., grabbing her by the hair before snatching her phone, according to authorities.

Police believe the crook is the same guy who attacked a woman on East Drive on Feb. 24, grabbing her by the hair before fleeing, cops said.

Investigators described the suspect as a man in his late 20’s, who stands at approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a red pullover sweatshirt with a white stripe and blue jeans, police said.

Tips leading to an arrest can result in a rewards up to $2,500 through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone tips in at (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.

April from Park Slope says:
If you read the article, the time listed for two of the attacks was in the afternoon, long before sunset. No time is listed for the other one. Also, the drives feel like the safest spots because it's where more people and vehicles (cops, parks workers, etc.) are and it's lit at night.

Gullible azzes? Very funny. The north Brooklyn ghetto is OVER very soon. Bed Stuy, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights and Bushwick are OWNED now by skinny latte-sipping Asian moms pushing strollers. No knives, no guns and they waltz past the lame projects at midnight just laughing at all you wannabe thugs acting all tough and sheet
