BRONX, NEW YORK CITY: A man accused of raping and robbing two women within a span of two months in a Bronx hotel, is on police lookout. The New York Police Department revealed that the attacker first went for a 25-year-old woman at the 7 Days Hotel on 2338 Bruckner Boulevard near Zerega Avenue in Unionport around 7.30 am, on September 17. He showed up at the hotel in response to an unspecified "online post."

Once he managed to get inside the building, he was seen with a "sharp cutting instrument," removed an undetermined amount of cash, and threatened and raped the woman, and walked away, claims the authorities. The investigation is on, and the police also suspect that the alleged rapist came back to the same hotel, after responding to another online sex-for-money advertisement around 6 am, on November 8, this time attacking and raping a 26-year-old woman in a similar way, reported the New York Post.

The police claim that this time too, the man brandished a blade, stole some cash, and threatened and raped the woman before taking off. Police have released surveillance footage from both the incidents, where the suspect can be seen entering and leaving the hotel premises, and also walking down a hallway, as per the report.

It has been reported that both the victims had refused any medical treatment at the scene following each incident.

Earlier this month, New York City witnessed another brutal rape attack, where Carl Phanor, sexually assaulted a woman before taking away her phone and wallet while she was out for a jog. The incident took place around 5.30 am, when a man allegedly grabbed her from behind, choked her, and then knocked her to the ground near Pier 45.

"The victim from yesterday currently remains in the ICU receiving treatment for several bone fractures, and she was choked to the point of losing consciousness,” Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Lauren Breen told the judge during a hearing.
