Police now say the man they're looking for in connection with an alleged sexual assault and three alleged attempted sexual assaults in Brooklyn attacked four women in a four-hour span. Police say each time, the suspect would follow the victims through their front doors and into their buildings. All of the victims were able to fight the man off - one woman even sprayed him with pepper spray.

In all four encounters, the victims managed to fight the man off.

On Tuesday, police said the same man is wanted for another two attempted rapes in the hours leading up to the previously reported assaults. On Wednesday, July 12th, around 11:45 p.m., investigators say a 22-year-old woman was followed by a male individual to the outside of her apartment near Pacific Street and Nostrand Avenue, where he "placed his hand over her mouth and pressed her against the hallway wall".

A little more than an hour later, the man targeted another woman inside a building at St. Marks and NY avenues, police said.

Police say the suspect then attacked a 22-year-old woman after following her into her apartment building near Lincoln Place and Albany Avenue around 2:30 a.m.

According to police, the suspect attacked a 29-year-old woman around 1 a.m. after pushing her inside of her apartment. The assailant put his hand over her mouth and wrapped his other arm around her body, but fled when the woman fought back. The individual placed his hand over the victim's mouth and dragged her down to the floor. The woman screamed, then punched and kicked the man, who let her go and fled the building, police said.

The suspect is described as being 6 " 1 tall, slim, and was last seen wearing a black T-shirt with white text across the chest, light-colored jeans, sneakers, short hair, and clean shaven.

The suspect was wearing a black T-shirt that read "F-- you, you f--ing f--" at the time of the assaults.
