WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A man who raped an 8-year-old girl in 2005 is back behind bars for a series of attacks on suburban New York women.

Westchester County’s district attorney says Akhim Blount has been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

Authorities say the registered sex offender had been released after completing most of a 10-year sentence. Then, he attacked three women in Yonkers in September 2015.

Yonkers is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Manhattan.

One was choked, raped and robbed in a residential area.

Another was grabbed while getting out of her car and violently groped, but managed to get free.

Blount also jumped into a woman’s car at a shopping center. He robbed and threatened to knife her, but she broke free and fled.
