Man indicted over rape of 73-year-old in Central Park

NEW YORK -- New York prosecutors announced Tuesday the indictment of a man accused of raping a 73-year-old bird watcher in Central Park, an assault that shocked America's biggest city.

David Mitchell, 42, is also accused in attacks on two other women in Manhattan the same day as the alleged Sept. 12 sex assault.

The New York District Attorney's Office says Mitchell's victim caught him masturbating in the park and took a picture with her camera as evidence to show the authorities. Several weeks later, he allegedly confronted her in the renowned park and when she tried to get away, assaulted and raped her, before fleeing with her camera bag.
