NYC: “Sicko who raped, robbed teacher in her Bronx apartment building arrested”

A sick predator who raped and robbed a teacher in her Bronx apartment building Thursday has been caught, police said.

Lynneke Burris, 30, allegedly grabbed the 23-year-old victim in the entrance to her apartment building on Park Ave. in Concourse Village and put her into a headlock about 1 a.m., cops said.

The woman passed out. When she woke up a few moments later, Burris was raping her, cops said.

When he was done, cops said Burris took her cash and wallet and demanded she give him her PIN before running off down the stairs.

The creep withdrew $500 from the victim’s account, police sources said. Medics rushed the woman to Lincoln Hospital.

A police officer spotted Burris and arrested him near 164th St. and Findlay Ave. in Concourse Village Thursday.

The cop recognized Burris, a resident of Prospect-Lefferts Garden, Brooklyn, from a surveillance photo.

Cops hit Burris – who has 21 prior arrests, including multiple assaults and a 2015 rape, on his record– with charges for rape, robbery, assault, strangulation and predatory sexual assault, police said.
