BROOKLYN - Police say they've arrested a suspect in connection with a sexual assault case in Flatbush last month, and that they believe he may be the same predator behind two other assaults in the area.

Investigators say Jonathan Williams, 21, of 163 Ocean Ave., has been charged in a rape that allegedly occurred last month at Flatbush and Bedford avenues.

Detectives say Williams followed the victim home and forced his way into her apartment, where he allegedly assaulted, raped and robbed her.

Williams may have been behind two other alleged sexual assaults that took place in the same location, dating back to 2008, police say. In both of those cases, the suspect forced his way into the victim's apartment, according to investigators.
