Police are hunting for a serial rapist who prowls Manhattan's Union Square subway station for young Asian women to follow home and brutally attack.

The fiend viciously raped two of the women in their building vestibules, and has attempted to assault two others since Oct. 1, police sources said. There may be more victims who have yet to come forward.

The suspect waits until a woman unlocks the door to her apartment building and then pounces from behind - choking his victims unconscious before raping them.

The perp is described as 6 feet tall and 170 pounds, and is in his late 20s. He wears a dark, hooded sweatshirt.

The three most recent attacks occurred on Oct. 20.

Anyone with information should contact the Crime Stoppers hot line at (800) 577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577
