A sick robber raped a woman as she walked across a bridge linking Washington Heights to the Bronx, police said Tuesday.
The creep confronted his 20-year-old victim at 1:30 a.m. Aug. 25, as she walked to Manhattan across the Washington Bridge, which spans the Harlem River near W. 181st St., cops said.
He gestured that he had a weapon near his waistband and demanded cash, and after he went through her handbag, he knocked her to the ground and raped her, cops said.
The same crook targeted a 26-year-old woman crossing the bridge early Feb. 20, cops said. That time, he pulled a knife, demanded cash, and put a hand in her pants.
