An East Elmhurst man has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman in Flushing and robbing a massage parlor at gunpoint three days later, cops said.
According to police, Zhordrack Blodywon entered a store at 35-32 Union Street in Flushing at 11 p.m. on October 17 and sexually assaulted a 55-year-old Asian female inside. The 40-year-old gunman, cops say, is also responsible for robbing two cell phones from individuals at a nearby massage parlor three days later at around 1 a.m.
Cops said they were able to cuff Blodywon several hours after the theft, when he walked into another massage parlor in Great Neck, Long Island. An employee there, they said, recognized him from either a police sketch or surveillance video and immediately called Crime Stoppers.
The perp fled onto a bus, authorities said, but Nassau County officers were able to locate and apprehend him. He was found to be in possession of a BB gun and a hunting knife, police said.
Blodywon may also be tied to the rape and assault of a 41-year-old Asian female in Manhattan on August 17, but that attack is still under investigation, police said.
He was arraigned in Queens on October 22 and is set to return to court November 5.
Blodywon faces several armed felony offenses — two counts of first-degree robbery and two counts of second-degree robbery — and is charged with two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, eight firearms counts and possession of a knife.
