Authorities are seeking neighbors’ assistance in tracking down David Evanson, 25, who is accused of raping a Dyker Heights woman over the weekend.

Cops say Evanson broke into a 21-year-old woman’s apartment through a window at 3:00 a.m. on Saturday, choked her as she lay in bed, dragged her into the living room and sexually assaulted her.

He then fled in a sedan.

The woman was treated at a local hospital and released.

The attack happened at the woman’s home near 15th Avenue and Bay Ridge Avenue. The victim knew her attacker, although cops declined to say how.

DNAinfo reports that the woman and her assailant had a previous relationship:

Authorities said the rape was not Evanson’s first attack on the woman, and an order of protection forbid him from seeing her.

He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 6 months in 2012 for assaulting the girlfriend, according to police. A judge ordered him to stay away from her for 2 years after the attack.

Evanson is 6’2″ and weighs 150 lbs, and lives on Long Island.

But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what one parent had to say about their experience:

MBBC/Nash Jew After School is great in all aspects. My daughter has been attending MBBC’s after school program for three years. Besides completing all of her homework in the program, she enjoys personalized attention from teachers and counselors. Every person working in the program greets us with a smile and positive attitude. Every day, they provide kids with different activities: gymnastics, dancing, chess, arts, and after, she can stay for additional training in a program she enjoys most. For my daughter, it’s dancing and gymnastics. All instruction is available in both English and Russian, which allows my daughter to learn Russian language and use it more. Any time I had a problem picking my daughter up, transportation was available. If she felt sick, I was called immediately. I will definitely use MBBC for years to come and recommend it to everyone.

Cops believe the same perp is behind eight burglaries that hit Borough Park and Midwood within a month and a half, in which a combined total of $228,330 in valuables was taken from neighbors’ homes.

Authorities are turning to the public for help identifying their suspect, who was caught on surveillance cameras rummaging through a home during one of the heists. The eight incidents took place between June 23 and August 11, in many cases while the homeowners appear to have been traveling.

The thief entered through a rear window, and limited his haul to silver and jewelry in almost every incident.

According to the NYPD, the following homes were hit (details below the map):

  • 1551 East 5th Street, between 8 p.m. on June 23 and 8 p.m. on July 1. Items totaling more than $13,000 were reported missing.
  • 1571 40th Street, between noon on June 27 and 8 p.m. on June 29. Items valued at $23,480 were reported missing.
  • 1436 50th Street, between noon on July 14 and 4:30 p.m. on August 14. Silver valued at $27,000 was reported missing.
  • 1449A 46th Street, between 8 p.m. on July 24 and 5 p.m. on July 29. Silver valued at $7,250 was reported missing.
  • 1672 43rd Street, between 11 a.m. on August 7 and 11:30 p.m. on August 18. Jewelry valued at $93,000 was reported missing.
  • 1545 East 5th Street, between 8:30 a.m. on August 8 and 11:20 p.m. on August 10. Silver valued at $40,600 was reported missing.
  • 1423 46th Street, between 1 p.m. on August 8 and 11 p.m. on August 10. Silver valued at $14,700 was reported missing.
  • 1623 42nd Street, at approximately 3 p.m. on August 11. Silver valued at $9,300 was reported missing.

The thief was caught on tape during the 43rd Street burglary.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.

Bensonhurst Bean reminds our readers to take the following precautions to prevent a burglary while on vacation.

  • Stop your mail, or ask a friend or neighbor to pick it up. Mail and newspapers piling up at the front door tip off would-be burglars.
  • Buy a light timer, and set lights in the house to go on and off during the day to give the appearance somebody is home. Don’t leave your lights on all night, as that is another sign to burglars that no one is home.
  • Have a friend stop by to check on the property.
  • Don’t close the curtains. Leave them exactly as you would when home.
  • Do not post information about your whereabouts on social media, or your plans to go on vacation.

One thing is for sure: if you’re going to choke, choke in Bensonhurst. The cops here are getting a name for their heroic rescues.

Cops from the 62nd Precinct rescued two people in separate incidents: one a festival goer at the 18th Avenue Feast, the other a two-week-old infant.

Two police officers patrolling the Festa di Santa Rosalia on Friday stumbled on the scene of a 20-year-old woman gasping for air at 70th Street. A friend was slapping her back to no avail, and the cops hurried over just as she dropped to the ground.

Officer Eric Smith snapped into action while is partner, Edward Nogol, called for an ambulance. Smith wrapped his arms around the woman and performed the Heimlich Maneuver, launching the fried festival food from her throat.

Out of precaution, the 20-year-old was taken to Maimonides Hospital conscious and alert.

Just two days later, on Sunday at 11:15 p.m., 911 got a call of a child having difficulty breathing at a home on 74th Street near 21st Avenue. Officers Elias Khan and Sergeant Michael Dario were the first on the scene, where they found the baby boy’s distraught 32-year-old mother who said the two-week-old wasn’t breathing.

The officers saw the baby unresponsive, with his face turning blue.

Khan put his training to use, doing a finger sweep of the child’s mouth, turning him over on his stomach and giving repeated thrusts on his back while Dario got on the radio to hasten the ambulance.

After just 10 to 15 seconds, cries rang through the home as the baby began breathing again.

The tot was taken to Maimonides in stable condition.
