NEWARK - The man accused of two rape attacks in Jersey City is scheduled to be arraigned today.

Police used surveillance video to identify and arrest the suspect after he allegedly raped a woman last weekend in McGinley Square. They say a 25-year-old woman was raped and beaten near Bergen and Fairmount avenues at around 1:30 a.m. Sunday

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office says the attack follows the rape and beating of a 34-year-old woman on March 23. Both women described their attacker as a physically fit black man, about 5'7" and around 30 years old.

The prosecutor's office says the man will be charged in connection to both assaults.
