Cops arrested an East New York man who allegedly raped a woman in Linden Park after she attempted to brush off his sexual advances, according to authorities.

The 26-year-old woman told police the creep repeatedly propositioned her near Pennsylvania Avenue and Linden Boulevard at 3 a.m. on Aug. 3, when she decided to cut through nearby Linden Park in an attempt to escape the fiend, cops said.

That’s when he followed her in and raped her, according to police.

The woman called 911 after the man fled the scene. EMS took the woman to an area hospital and is in stable condition.

Cops arrested the 31-year-old suspect on Aug. 7 and charged him with rape.
