Suspected rapist posing as Good Samaritan offers to walk intoxicated woman home, instead sexually assaults her: Police

Police are searching for a man who reportedly offered to walk an intoxicated woman home early Sunday morning after flagging down a taxi for the woman’s friend. Instead of walking her home, he raped her, according to authorities.  

The New York Post reported that the suspected rapist, described as “a man posing as a good Samaritan,” walked up to the purported victim and her friend, who was allegedly intoxicated, at approximately 2:20 a.m. after they attended a party in Brownsville, a neighborhood in Brooklyn. Citing police and other sources, the newspaper said the man “approached them near Herzl Street and Dumont Avenue and asked if they needed help.”

Sources said after the suspect flagged down a cab for one of the women, he then proposed to walk her 20-year-old friend home. When she obliged, he apparently walked her through Betsy Head Park and suggested they have sex.

When the victim turned the suspect down, he raped her, officials said. She then “screamed” before the man apparently fled the scene with her wallet and iPhone. Police indicated that afterward, the victim flagged down a passerby, who called for help before the woman was taken to a local hospital.

The alleged rapist is “described as in his mid-30s to early 40s, had a ponytail, facial hair and a black jacket with an orange lining,” according to The Post.

The incident eerily occurred on the same morning that police said a woman in Baltimore who acted as a Good Samaritan was killed as she tried to help a woman and her baby.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 53-year-old Jacquelyn Smith handed the woman, who held an infant and a sign that read “Please Help me feed my Baby,” money before a man approached her and pretended to thank her. When he attempted to steal her wallet, a struggle ensued, and ended with the woman being stabbed to death.
