The first incident happened around 9 p.m. on April 4 in the area of Albany Avenue and Fenimore Street. Police said the suspect lured a 25-year-old woman to a parking lot where he raped her.
The second happened on April 11 around 8 a.m. In that incident, police said he attacked a 19-year-old woman in the driveway of a private home near Remsen Avenue and Farragut Road.
The third happened later that day just after 8 p.m. In that incident, police said he raped a 15-year-old girl on the sixth floor of a building near Midwood Street and Schenectady Avenue.
Police said just before the third attack, the suspect and another man were seen on surveillance video next to the B12 bus stop at the intersection of Albany Avenue and Rutland Road.
