Far Rockaway Man A Serial Rapist: DA

Far Rockaway Man A Serial Rapist: DA

A local man, who allegedly raped a pregnant teenager at knifepoint inside her Far Rockaway apartment, is a "serial rapist" who also attacked young women in the Bronx and Brooklyn, the Queens district attorney charged last week.

Jay Bradshaw, 20, of 2961 Falcon Avenue in Far Rockaway faces two first degree criminal sex charges including rape and is also charged with robbery. He could spend 25 years in prison if convicted.

District Attorney Richard A. Brown said that in April, Bradshaw pushed his way into the apartment of a pregnant 17-year-old, raped her and then looted her apartment of an engagement ring, money, a DVD player, cell phone and a wallet before fleeing.

Bradshaw was apprehended by police in Brooklyn last week after another knifepoint rape of a female teenager in which he allegedly followed the teen home from the subway, grabbed her from behind and raped her behind a building in an alley. He is also accused of committing a similar rape in the Bronx.
