VIDEO: Police searching for serial rapist in Brooklyn

(CBS) -- Police released surveillance footage of an alleged serial rapist wanted for several attacks in Brooklyn this month, CBS New York reports.

Police said the alleged rapist is responsible for at least three attacks this month. In each attack, the suspect strikes up a conversation with his victim, lures her to an isolated area and then rapes her, according to the station.

On April 4 around 9 p.m., the suspect lured a 25-year-old woman to a parking lot near Albany Avenue and Fenimore Street where he raped her, police said.

The second attack happened around 8 a.m. on April 11, when the suspect allegedly attacked a 19-year-old woman in the driveway of a private home near Remsen Avenue and Farragut Road.

Police said the third attack happened later that day around 8 p.m. when the suspect raped a 15-year-old girl in a building near Midwood Street and Schenectady Avenue.

Just before the third attack, surveillance video caught the suspect and another man speaking near a bus stop at the intersection of Albany Avenue and Rutland Road, CBS New York reports.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing between 160-180 pounds, police said. He was reportedly seen in the surveillance video wearing a green camouflaged jacket, pants, boots and a baseball cap, possibly with a NY Knick or Yankees logo.

Police are also searching for the man seen in the video dressed in white for questioning.
