Alvin Henry pleads guilty of raping four women and teenage girl

Former Trinidad and Tobago Olympic sprinter Alvin Henry confessed to raping four women and a teenage girl during a four-year period.

Henry, a member of the 400-meter relay team at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, was arrested on Sunday near Prospect Park in Brooklyn by police who matched him to a composite sketch of the rape suspect .

The 30-year-old runner, who lives in Queens, was arrested on charges of rape, sexual misconduct and sexual abuse, police said. He was being arraigned on Monday, and information about his lawyer wasn't immediately available.

Brian Lewis, secretary general of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, confirmed the man was the same Alvin Henry who had run for Trinidad and Tobago.

"He stopped running a couple of years ago," Lewis said. "He just dropped off the scene."

Police said Henry attacked three women in Baisley Park and Roy Wilkins Park in Queens and two others in Prospect Park, including a 15-year-old girl in April. In at least four of the attacks, police said the women had been walking with men. When the men left, Henry pounced, police said.

The latest assault took place on June 15 in Prospect Park, where police said Henry brandished a gun and raped a 34-year-old woman. After that attack, investigators were able to link it to others.
