Cops Arrest Man Suspected in String of Massage Parlor Rapes

FLUSHING — A 40-year-old Queens man has been arrested for a string of sexual assaults and robberies in several massage parlors, authorities said.

Zhordrack Blodywon was arrested by Nassau County police Saturday after he fled a Long Island massage parlor when employees recognized him from police reports as the suspect in a series of crimes at several city parlors.

When cops finally located the bus Blodywon had fled in, they found him carrying a hunting knife and a BB gun, police said.

Blodywon is believed to have sexually assaulted a 55-year-old woman in a business on Union Street in Flushing, Queens, about 11:00 p.m. Wednesday, NYPD officials said.

On Saturday, at about 1:00 a.m., police believe he stole two cell phones at gunpoint from the Butterfly Massage Parlor, which is just a few doors down from the Union Square attack.

Blodywon then entered the Long Island massage parlor some 12 hours later, and was later arrested.

Police also believe Blodywon beat a 41-year-old woman unconscious and then raped her in the Body Work massage parlor near Washington Square in Manhattan about 10:00 p.m. on Aug. 17.

Blodywon has been charged for the Saturday robbery and the Wednesday rape, but police said the Aug. 17 assault remains under investigation.
