BRONX, NEW YORK, OCTOBER 1- Police have announced the arrest of a suspect wanted in connection with three attacks on women, including one attack where he removed the victim's shoes and smelled her feet.
Cops say University Avenue resident Calvin Presinal, 28, approached his victims from behind and choked them until they passed out.
Presinal reportedly approached his first victim at 12:10 a.m. on August 5, when a 21-year-old woman was attacked at W. Kingsbridge Road and Jerome Avenue.
Investigators have also charged Presinal with two additional attacks that took place on August 30. Police say the second victim was approached at the intersection of Sedgwick Avenue and Bailey Avenue at 1:10 a.m.
In that incident Presinal reportedly removed the shoes of his 18-year-old victim and sniffed her feet before running off.
Less than a half hour, police say Presinal struck again along Parkview Terrace in Bedford Park, when he approached a 24-year-old woman whom he allegedly choked and wrestled to the ground.
The victim reportedly fought back as the suspect attempted to undress her.
Presinal was arrested on Friday, September 6, and charged with three counts of assault, three counts of strangulation and attempted rape.
Police continue to hunt for a second individual who is being sought in connection with the August 21 attempted sexual assault of a 20-year old Fordham University student, who was attacked inside her off-campus building.
