Knife-Wielding Man On F Train Steals Woman's Panties In Latest Attack


As if women in Park Slope, Sunset Park and a bunch of other Brooklyn neighborhoods aren't scared enough, you can add two more attacks to the list cops are trying to solve.

In the most recent attack, cops say a woman was walking down Prospect Avenue in Park Slope around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, when a man came up behind her, groped her breasts and ran.

This is the 10th sex attack following the same pattern and a police source says the woman told police her attacker looked like the suspect from a flyer.

At about 2:25 a.m. Wednesday, cops say another suspect approached a woman on the F train, put his hand around her throat, showed a knife, and demanded her bag. Then, they say he demands her underwear.

Cops say no sex attack happened, but the suspect is now wanted for attempted rape and robbery. They say this all happened in Fort Hamilton subway station.

The suspect is described as black, male, approximately 45-50 years old, 5'10", 200 lbs, with a stocky build, bald and has scruffy facial hair.

Cops are already searching for a suspect or suspects in a string of sex attacks throughout Park Slope, Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace.
