Cops are on the hunt for the armed rapist who assaulted a 42-year-old woman in Clinton Hill on March 23.

According to police, the victim was on Gates Avenue between Classon Avenue and Irving Place at around 5:30 am, when the hooded brute dragged her across the street and then raped and sodomized her in a vacant lot between two buildings.

Cops say the suspect matches the description of a thug who raped a 56-year-old woman on March 16 near Fulton Street and Franklin Avenue. In that incident, the creep forced the woman into a nearby park at gunpoint, where he then sexually assaulted her and struck her in the head with his gun.

The lowlife is thought to be in his late 20s or early 30s, roughly 5-foot-9 and 160 to 180 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black hat and a green jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call (800) 577-8477.

Updated 6:15 pm, March 31, 2010: Story was updated to correct conflicting information provided initially by the NYPD.
