Suspect Wanted In Knife-Point Sexual Assaults Apprehended In Queens Playground


By Geoffrey Croft

Police have apprehended a 30-year-old suspect wanted in connection with two sexual assaults in two straight days  in a Queens park, including a knife point rape according to the police. 
While canvassing Kissena Park on Thursday police spotted a man they said matched the description inside a playground in the same park where he hunted his victims.

Police took Charles Tobin into custody. 

On Tuesday in Kissena Park Corridor, at 11:00pm a black male approached a 32-year woman from behind at knife point and robbed her of $ 50 dollars.  He then forced her into a wooded area where he instructs her to put a condom on him before raping her.  

On Wednesday, the next night at 11:30 p.m, a 17-year-old female Asian was walking in the park after going for a jog when she was approached by a male black with a knife. He placed the knife to her neck according to police and forced her into a wooded area where the attacker demands oral sex. He instructs her to put a condom on him, she complies and went about the sex act. 

After the sexual assault he fled the park.

Police found a condom wrapper at the scene which is being tested for DNA.     

The incident occurred in the park near 56 Avenue and Main Street within the confines of the 109th Precinct.    

The suspect arrested was described as a male black, approximately 30-years-old, 5’7” and last seen wearing a red tank-top.

Charges are pending Friday as of this afternoon.

For years the public has complained about the lack of dedicated park police. These pleas have been ignored.
