NEW YORK — A New York City lawyer has been arrested on charges of assaulting three women between late 2014 and early 2015.

Thirty-five-year-old Rashaun Kelley was arrested Friday on multiple charges of burglary, attempted rape and sex abuse.

Police say Kelley sneaked up behind the three women as they entered their Manhattan apartment buildings or elevators and grabbed them. He is also a suspect in two additional similar attacks.

The Daily News reports that Kelley was arrested by warrants officers after members of the Manhattan special victims squad built a case against him.

Kelley was awaiting arraignment Saturday. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

Kelley’s own legal practice focuses on business, corporate and securities law. A phone message left at his law office was not answered.
