Police have arrested a man in connection with two sexual assaults in a Queens park.

The Daily News reported that police spotted the suspect drinking from a water fountain in Kissena Park in Flushing and noticed that he fit the description of the attacker.

According to police, the 30-year-old man was taken into custody.

He is arrested in connection with two attacks. The first occurred Tuesday night around 11 p.m. where the suspect demanded money from 32-year-old woman and raped her in the park.
