Darryl Littlejohn, a person of interest in the rape and murder of Imette St. Guillen is expected to be charged later today in another rape case.
The bouncer considered a person of interest in the slaying of a New York City graduate student is reportedly expected to be charged with rape in a separate case today as tests reveal that fibers found on the student’s body match those on a carpet taken from the potential suspect’s home.
Police also believe Littlejohn, 41, is connected to the rape of two women in Queens and one in Nassau County late last year. The New York Daily News reported that Littlejohn is expected to appear in court today and be charged in the Queens case. The alleged victim in that case, sources told the News, told police that she was abducted on Oct. 16, 2005, handcuffed and thrown into a van. There, she said, her attacker covered her face with a jacket, raped her and then dumped her onto the street.
The alleged victim, the News reported, identified Littlejohn as her attacker in a police lineup and recognized a van linked to him as a van used in her attack.
