Market Street Rapist Captured

Yesterday afternoon, police searched for Rafael Velez, 42-year-old, who is responsible for two rapes in the downtown area. Since Thursday police have caught the man after a night of manhunt.

The 42-year-old is accused sexually assaulting two women at knife-point.

Authorities believe there are other victims who did not come forward to report Mr Velez because he threatened to harm their family members.

Paterson Police is asking them to come forward: if you or you know was victimized by Mr Velez call 973-321-1120..
