NEW YORK — Police in New York City are searching for a man they say was involved in a string of assaults.

Authorities say the man followed four different women into their apartment buildings and attempted to sexually assault them between just before midnight last Wednesday and 3:30 a.m. Thursday in Brooklyn. Police say the suspect first followed a 22-year-old woman and attacked her in the hallway of her apartment before fleeing.

According to police, the suspect attacked a 29-year-old woman around 1 a.m. after pushing her inside of her apartment. The woman fought back and the suspect fled.

Police say two other victims fought back before the suspect fled in two other similar attacks that occurred later that morning.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect.
