NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a rape and robbery in Brooklyn after an usual break in the case.

Michael Mann, 52, faces numerous charges including rape, robbery, sex abuse, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and others, police said.

Mann is accused of attacking a woman at knifepoint early Tuesday morning as she got off a J train in Bushwick. Police said he forced her into a dark corner next to a parking lot, stole her cash and phone and raped her.

The victim told investigators that he said, “Don’t tell police or I will kill you.” The suspect then gave her phone back, but kept the money and fled.

On Wednesday, police said Mann called 911 from a pay phone and asked for a ride to a train. When cops responded, police said they recognized his red sneakers from the victim’s description.
