Rapist struck at least 6 times in Queens

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The NYPD is on the hunt for a rapist responsible for the sexual assaults of six women in Queens since 2011.

In three of the incidents the victims were jogging in Forest Park when they were attacked.

The daylight assaults happened mostly in Forest Park and along Park Lane South at the southern edge of the park.

In the last two attacks -- in August and March -- the suspect used an electric stun gun to knock his victims to the ground, said police.

In November 2012, police say the suspect exposed himself to a 40-year-old woman as she jogged with her dog.

He rubbed himself against her before fleeing.

The man also tried to rape a 13-year-old girl in September 2011, said police.

A $22,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

He is described as 30-40 years old, approximately 5'9" tall, with light brown hair and clean shaven.

Police say he was wearing a black T-shirt and black sweat pants in one of the assaults.

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table. But they were brought together over concerns about possible protest violence by the cardinal, one of the most powerful figures in the city and who commands respect across the board.
