Brooklyn, NY- An East Flatbush man who was in jail on an rape charge almost raped another woman after he was released from Rikers Island.
On Saturday around 5:45 a.m., Police responded to a 911 call on East New York Ave., and found Robert Pondexter, 57, and his crackpipe.
Pondexter had allegedly been walking across the street from the Concern Heights Apartments building, when he grabbed a woman by the collar and pulled her into a school parking lot.
The victim, 58, was a stranger to Pondexter. The woman told police that Pondexter choked her and forced her to perform oral sex before demanding she take off her pants, but she was able to kick Pondexter away.
Pondexter was detained in Rikers on a prior rape charge on a different woman. He was released on April 15 over coronavirus fears, and just 10 days later attacked another victim.
The woman was transported to a hospital and Pondexter was arrested at the scene and faces charges for attempted rape and sexual assault, among others.
