Sex predator on the loose in Bay Ridge

A gun-wielding man sexually assaulted and robbed two women in the span of about 40 minutes on Feb. 25 on 82nd Street in Bay Ridge, cops say.

The first incident occurred between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 11:15 pm. The perp approached a 44-year-old woman from behind and pointed a gun to her back.

He pushed her into the building and yelled, “I’m going to kill you bitch” before jacking her cellphone and $6.

The mugger also unzipped his pants and tried to unzip the victim’s jacket before she fought him off. He finally fled.

About 20 minutes later near Fifth Avenue, the same jerk approached a victim, showed off a handgun, and forced his victim behind a building, where he sexually assaulted her.

The perp then took her cellphone and fled.

“The investigation is ongoing and we’re taking this very seriously,” said 68th Precinct Deputy Inspector Eric Rodriguez. “It’s an unusual incident; there aren’t many sexual assaults around here.”

This is the first sexual assault to be reported within the confines of the Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights precinct this year. The last sexual assault was three years ago, Rodriguez said.
