They accused him of brandishing a gun and forcing the victim into a stairwell, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her before stealing her keys and money. The victim was taken to Coney Island Hospital for evaluation.
Police also suspected Wilson in a nearby robbery. They said he entered another building in the Luna Park complex, got into an elevator with another woman, and stole her purse at gunpoint.
Surveillance video at the buildings helped police identify and apprehend Wilson, according to officials.
According to investigators, Wilson was arrested on burglary charges in 2002 and was identified by one of the victims of the elevator robberies from an array of pictures.
