Sister act: Nun makes up rape story to hide sexual tryst

Rapist recant

A Christian nun who claimed that a hulking brute raped her on Jan. 22 has recanted her story, claiming that she made the whole thing up.

The victim, who is connected to the Apostles of Infinite Love convent in East Flatbush, told investigators that she was walking along Glenwood Road near E. 40th Street when a 6-foot-4-inch thug grabbed and choked her until she blacked out, then sexually assaulted her.

She was taken to a local hospital where she was treated — and made her statement to police.

Yet, after police drew up a sketch of the suspect and began their search, the woman admitted the truth — she made the rape story up to cover the fact that she had consensual sex, in the street, no less, with a local bodega owner.

Cops did not charge the woman with making a false report.

Found dead

Cops are trying to determine what killed a 60-year-old man found dead inside his Woodruff Avenue apartment on Feb. 6.

The city’s Medical Examiner’s office has been charged with performing an autopsy on the victim, who lived between Parade Place and Ocean Parkway. He was found dead at 2:35 pm, officials said.

Anyone with information regarding this man’s death is urged to contact NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.

Laundry lout

A thief swiped cash from a Ocean Avenue laundromat on Feb. 6, but didn’t get away with the crime.

In fact, the 52-year-old thief was hit with a battery of drug charges when cops caught him with an assortment of marijuana and cocaine following his arrest between Caton and Church avenues.

Robbery rogues

Police have arrested a 17-year-old in connection with two violent local robberies.

Prosecutors said that the thief and an unarrested accomplice jumped a teen near the corner of Albemarle Road and E. 18th Street at 12:10 am on Jan. 20. The thugs threw the victim into a fence, beat him, and made off with his wallet and iPod.

Three days later, the thugs jumped a second teen on E. 18th Street between Albemarle and Beverly Road at 11:40 pm. The duo beat their victim before making off with his cash and iPod.

The 17-year-old suspect was arrested earlier this week, charged with multiple counts of robbery.

Shot dead

A gunman shot a 30-year-old man dead on Jan. 28 during an exchange inside a high-rise on McKeever Place.

The victim was found on the 16th floor of the building, which is near Montgomery Street, at 5 pm, dead from gunshot wounds to the head and shoulder, police said.

Three stabbed

A knife-wielding assailant attacked three people on Fenimore Street on Jan. 30 — killing one of them.

The victims were nearing Rogers Avenue at 2:25 am when the assailant attacked, stabbing a 21-year-old in the chest and stomach. The fiend then turned on a second man, stabbing him in the stomach. The third victim was stabbed in the left leg, officials said.

Police said the 21-year-old died of his injuries a short time later at Kings County Hospital.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to come forward.

Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

No one’s safe

Anyone can be mugged — even police department forensic investigators.

Police said the evidence collector was robbed of her cellphone, wallet and cash during a furious exchange on Utica Avenue and Clarendon Road on Jan. 26.

The victim said she was nearing the corner at 11:30 pm when a man in a hooded sweatshirt attacked.
