A grand jury will decide Tuesday whether to indict a man accused of raping a Russian tourist in Riverside Park two weeks ago.

Hugues-Denver Akassy, 42, is accused of rape.

In grand jury testimony Monday, Akassy said the sex was consensual.

However, 10 women have come forward to the Manhattan's District Attorney's office saying he is a sexual predator who has molested or harassed them.
