BUSHWICK - Police have released surveillance video of the man they say attacked two women and raped one of them.

The first attack happened on February 1 on Woodbine Street, when police say the suspect pushed a 39-year-old woman to the ground and touched her inappropriately. The victim was able to fight him off and run away.

Police say a 37-year-old woman was approached from behind by the same suspect on April 6. Investigators say he put an unknown object against her back and demanded money. When she told him she didn't have any, he raped her.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, who's around 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs approximately 165 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black jeans. Anyone who knows anything about the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
