Bronx detectives have cuffed the suspect whom they say raped two woman inside the same hotel earlier this year.

Dashawn Williams, 28, of 65 Charles Gay Loop on Randall’s Island — listed as the Schwarz Assessment Facility for the Homeless — was picked up on Nov. 26 and charged with two counts each of rape and menacing.

Law enforcement sources said Williams allegedly attacked two women in separate incidents nearly two months apart inside the 7 Days Hotel at 2338 Bruckner Blvd. in Unionport.

In both attacks, cops said, the perpetrator came to the location in response to online posts, then subsequently attacked his victims while threatening to cut them with a sharp object.

Regarding the first incident, which happened at 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 17, police said Williams allegedly confronted a 25-year-old woman, robbed her of cash and raped her. 

Law enforcement sources said the second attack occurred nearly two months later, at 6 a.m. on Nov. 8, when Williams allegedly robbed and raped a 26-year-old woman at the location.

Both incidents were reported to the 43rd Precinct. The victims refused medical attention at the scene, police reported.
