DNA evidence points to ‘career rapist’ in 1994 Prospect Park rape …

Detectives appear to have cracked a nearly 25-year-old rape case after connecting DNA recovered from the crime scene at Prospect Park in Brooklyn to a “career rapist” serving a life sentence in prison.

James Webb, 67, has been identified as the bearded brute who grabbed a 27-year-old woman on a park footpath on April 26, 1994, then pulled her into the bushes and raped her.

“He’s a savage,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said about Webb, who’s at Sing Sing serving a 75-year prison sentence for raping four women in 1995.

He will almost certainly die in prison. He’s eligible for parole in 2070.
