Suspect arrested in massage parlor rape and robbery spree
A 40-year-old East Elmhurst man was awaiting arraignment Sunday for the Oct. 17 rape of 55-year-old worker in a Flushing massage parlor and the robbery of another massage parlor Saturday in Queens.
Twelve hours after Zhordrack Blodywon allegedly strode into Flushing's Butterfly Massage Parlor Saturday morning brandishing a gun and stole two cellphones, he allegedly walked into another massage parlor in Great Neck, where an alert employee recognized his face from a media release and called the police. Blodywon fled onto a bus, but Nassau County police caught him, finding a BB gun and a hunting knife in his possession. During the investigation, a Crime Stoppers tip also came into the NYPD naming the suspect.
The NYPD is also investigating the possibility Blodywon is connected to the brutal Aug. 17 rape of a 41-year-old woman working in a West Village massage parlor.
