Suspect arrested on charges he raped 1 woman, assaulted 2 others in Manhattan


NEW YORK — A 20-year-old man has been arrested on charges he raped one woman and assaulted two others in Manhattan.

Police say Robert Bowie, of the Bronx, was arrested early Saturday on charges he attacked all three women Thursday.

Police said a 40-year-old woman was raped by a man who forced his way into her apartment.

They said another woman fought off an attempted sexual assault by the same man.

They said the same attacker robbed another woman and then fled.

It wasn't clear whether Bowie had an attorney who could comment on the charges.
