NYPD arrests alleged rapist in Bronx – NBC New York (47)

NEW YORK – An alleged rapist accused of assaulting women in a Bronx hotel has finally been arrested, police said.

Dashawn Williams, a 28-year-old from Randall’s Island, is behind two sexual assaults and robberies at the 7 Days Hotel on Bruckner Boulevard, NYPD said.

Arrested on rape and menacing charges, Williams was wanted by detectives for two separate hotel attacks on September 17 and November 8. In both cases, police said they met the women in the morning hours.

Police said the 28-year-old man responded to an online post to meet his first victim at around 7.30am, when he produced a sharp weapon and took the woman’s money before raping her. He repeated the same actions after replying to another post nearly two months later, this time in a 6am attack.

Both victims refused to receive medical treatment, according to police.
