NYC: Man accused of raping LI woman, returning to her home in clown makeup

A convicted sex offender allegedly raped a woman on Long Island before returning to her home two days later in clown makeup to commit burglary, prosecutors said.

Joseph Johnson, 33, of Wyandanch, was indicted Wednesday for his alleged crime spree last September, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini.

Johnson is accused of first breaking into several cars near the Wyandanch train station last Sept. 19. Later that day, he allegedly broke into a home, raped and choked a woman and fled with stolen cash, prosecutors said.

The homeowner installed surveillance cameras, which captured Johnson back at the home two days later in clown makeup.

The surveillance system was also damaged that day, officials said.
