Man Who Got 10 Years For Raping 8-Year-Old Girl In 2005 Gets 20 Years To Life For Raping Woman In 2015

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A man who raped an 8-year-old girl in 2005 is back behind bars for a series of attacks on suburban New York women.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino Jr. says Akhim Blount has been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

Authorities say the registered sex offender had been released after completing most of a 10-year sentence.

Then he attacked three women in Yonkers in September 2015.

He choked, raped and robbed a 57-year-old woman in a residential area and threatened to cut off her head, prosecutors said.

Another was grabbed while getting out of her car and violently groped, but managed to get free.

Blount also jumped into a woman’s car at the Cross County Shopping Center. He robbed and threatened to knife her, but she broke free during a struggle and fled.
