Damien Hollis, 21, is the man police say was behind the gunpoint rape and robbery of a 26-year-old woman in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, last May.
The incident happened around 3 a.m. on May 29, 2012 at East York and Ralph avenues.
Authorities say Hollis displayed a police shield before forcing the woman inside Lincoln Terrace Park, where he raped her and stole her cell phone.
Hollis was arrested around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
He was charged Friday with rape, criminal sexual act, criminal impersonation, sexual abuse, robbery and menacing.
