The Queens District Attorney says that a 15-year-old black male has been charged and arrested in connection with two sex attacks
Police say that there have been a total of five sex attacks in the last few weeks and they are still investigating whether the same teen is connected to the other attacks. It’s not clear if the teen charged is the same person caught by security cameras after an assault outside Queens Village recently, or if he resembles sketches of suspects released by police. The suspect — identified only as a Springfield Gardens resident because he is a minor — was charged in separate incidents that occurred in the Laurelton section recently. The victims in both attacks were hit in the head. The teenage suspect has been charged with 2 counts of attempted rape, 1 count of attempted sex abuse, 1 count of sex abuse and assault.
