A stranger attempted to rape a woman in her Sunset Park home yesterday, police said.
The creep, captured in this surveillance picture, knocked on the front door of the victim’s residence near 49th Street about 3 a.m., then forced his way into her house and tried to rape her, cops said. A family member pushed the sicko off, and he fled, cops added.
The suspect is in his forties, five foot eight, and approximately 170 pounds, authorities said.
A woman was also recently sexually assaulted in nearby Park Slope. The assailant followed a 22-year-old woman, then grabbed from behind around 5 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of 16th Street and Fourth Avenue, police said. He then ran off.
The suspect in that incident is also believed to be in his forties, but is about five foot four and 140 pounds.
Cops are investigating whether these attacks are tied to similar assaults in Sunset Park and Park Slope last year.
