Man arrested in connection with two sexual assaults in Queens park

By NY1 News

Charges are pending against a man police say attacked two women at a park in Queens earlier this week.

Both incidents took place Tuesday night inside Kissena Corridor Park in Flushing.

Police say around 11 p.m. the man grabbed a 32-year-old woman at knifepoint and demanded money.

They say after she gave him $50, he took her to a wooded area and forced her to perform a sex act and then raped her.

The woman went to Bellevue Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Then, about a half hour later, the attacker forced a 17-year-old woman to perform another sex act.

Police say the 30-year-old suspect was arrested Thursday.

An investigation is ongoing.
