Man Rapes 2 Women at Gunpoint, Threatens Teen Girl in Brooklyn Spree: NYPD

BROOKLYN — A man raped two women and threatened a 15-year-old girl at gunpoint during a terrifying two-hour spree in East New York on Tuesday morning, NYPD officials said.

Keith Wiggins, 26, first raped a 29-year-old woman at gunpoint behind a truck outside 609 Fountain Ave., near Loring Avenue, about 6:50 a.m., police said. She was taken to Kings County Hospital, police and fire officials said.

About 30 minutes later, he pulled a gun on a 15-year-old girl at Sutter and Lincoln avenues, but she managed to run away, the NYPD said.

Then, about 8:40 a.m., he sexually assaulted a 26-year-old woman outside a Jerome Street apartment building, near Hegeman Avenue, police sources said. Her condition was unclear, the NYPD said. 

Wiggins was picked up driving a minivan that was spotted at the scene of the third attack, police sources said.

He used a silver revolver in all three incidents, police said. 

He was charged with rape, committing a criminal sex act and menacing, according to police. He was awaiting arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Wednesday morning.

Wiggins, of South Ozone Park, Queens, has two priors arrests, one for jumping a turnstile; the other is sealed, the NYPD said. 

The Brooklyn attacks follow a similar string of Staten Island attacks last month where a man in an SUV tried to rape four random females.
