A 15-year-old boy has been collared and is being questioned by detectives in connection with a string of five recent sex attacks in eastern Queens. Hit the jump to read the rest of the story.

Charges are pending against the teen, who was picked out of a police lineup by a victim in at least one of the attacks, the sources said. His name was not released by the sources.

The pattern began when a 44-year-old woman was sexually assaulted as she entered her home in Queens Village shortly after 1 a.m. on Sept. 22, police said.

The woman screamed, causing the creep to scram – but detectives believe he did not stop there.

The same young pervert is suspected of striking four more times, most recently on Oct. 16, when a 24-year-old woman was cracked in the back of the head by an attacker, who then sexually assaulted her once she fell to the ground.

Police officials did not reveal what led detectives to pick up the suspect.
