The East Village man accused of assaulting three women in separate attacks pleaded not guilty today.
Last month, police arrested Juan Scott, 26, for the attempted rape of a 20-year-old woman in an elevator at 600 E. 14th St. in Stuy Town. Scott was later linked to two other attacks, one on East 11th Street and one on East 13th Street.
According to the Post this afternoon:
[He] pleaded not guilty Tuesday to attempted rape, burglary and sexual abuse raps for three separate attacks on women in Manhattan while his latest victim’s teary-eyed parents watched from the gallery.
Prosecutor Brendan Tracy recommended a sentence of 20 years behind bars if the dangerous creep pleaded guilty to all three attacks.
The Villager had previously reported that Scott is a cousin of Rosario Dawson. Her mother and father and other relatives still live at 544 E. 13th St., where police arrested Scott.
