A Queens man was arraigned this weekend on rape and weapons charges for allegedly threatening two women with a hammer in Brooklyn earlier this month.
Bail for Anthony Moore, 19, was set at $25,000.
Investigators believe a sketch released after the first incident was Moore, who was armed with a hammer when he approached the 18-year-old victim early in the morning of April 9 in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
He allegedly forced her into an alley and raped her.
They say he also tried to attack another woman in her apartment building later the same day, but she was able to fight him off and get away.
Moore is charged with unlawful imprisonment and harassment in that incident.
He is due back in court on Thursday.
