The NYPD released surveillance camera photos of an alleged rapist they have been hunting since September, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

The alleged sleazeball is described as a 5’8 muscular man with a shaved bald head. He spoke with a Russian accent.

According to the NYPD, he lured a woman to Bensonhurst’s Harbor Motor Inn (1730 Shore Parkway) on September 2, 2012, with the promise of a job interview. After paying for the room, he attacked and raped the victim, a 39-year-old woman.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Crime Stoppers. All callers to Crime Stoppers remain anonymous. Crime Stoppers can be reached at 1-800-577-TIPS, via the website, or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.

  1. Omm, job interview in a hotel room… omm, more to the story? I am a 27 year old female and would suspect something is wrong if a job interview would be in a motel.

  2. Yes, because conducting job interviews in motels happens all the time. I’m sure he didn’t pay her for the service(s) and she’s screaming “rape”.

  3. Hotel interviews are pretty common especially for MBA/LAW recruiting. When interviews are done in hotels they are held in 4 or 5 star hotels and in suites. This sounds like a whore who didnt get her money.

  4. The last thing a hooker would do if she didn’t get paid is cry “rape” – a beat down by her pimp would be more in order.

  5. A lot of hookers don’t have pimps. And a number of them are assaulted by clients and don’t bother to report it because the police are unlikely to investigate.

    This wasn’t prostitution related.

  6. For the reason I stated above. And I seriously doubt a prostitute would invent a story like this. the last thing most of them want is to have to answer a lot of police questions. Too often, police treat victims as if they are somehow responsible for the crime they are reporting. Street people are pretty aware of that.

  7. Actually…….. i beg to differ, i once knew a girl who was pretty stupid, she cried rape because her boyfriend cheated on her and didn’t give her the weed he owed her….

    Some people now a days are just stupid as hell.

    For the record this fella looks familiar as hell!

  8. Prostitutes are pretty smart about some things, But something else struck me as curious. the incident took place early last September. They wait almost 6 months before releasing the photo. While it’s not an indication that this case was worked in a steady fashion for six months, it does mean that the cops took this seriously enough not to let it get buried. The question of why intrigues me. The answer would probably validate my contention that it was not a prostitute.
