BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A man suspected of being the so-called Black Rock rapist who terrorized Bridgeport women in 2010 has pleaded no contest in two sexual assaults and agreed to serve 28 years in prison.

The Connecticut Post reports that 19-year-old Terrance Easton pleaded no contest Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court to home invasion, sexual assault and robbery charges. He’s detained on more than $1 million bail and is scheduled to be sentenced on July 29.

Police say Easton broke into an apartment and raped a woman at gunpoint in July 2010. Authorities say Easton’s fingerprints were found at the home and connected him to another rape in the Black Rock neighborhood the previous March.

Police say they suspected Easton of two other rapes but didn’t have enough evidence to charge him.
