A Pennsylvania man was busted last Friday for raping a 15-year-old girl at a Queens hotel—just two days after he was charged for sex crimes involving a 14-year-old girl and let loose, authorities said.

Lawrence Winslow, 27, was arrested for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl inside the JFK Inn in Jamaica. The arrest came about 48 hours after he was charged for keeping a 14-year-old girl against her will– and demanding sex–at a hotel in Long Island City.

Winslow was charged with sex trafficking, child sex trafficking, raping a minor and promoting prostitution in regards to the JFK incident that took place sometime between Feb. 17 and Feb. 19, police said. According to the charges, he plied the teenager with drugs and alcohol prior to raping her.

He has been remanded in custody and is awaiting arraignment, police said.

The arrest comes just two days after he was let go following a sexual attack on a 14-year-old girl.

Winslow allegedly met up with the 14-year-old victim at La Quinta Inn, located at 37-18 Queens Blvd., at around 7 p.m. on Feb. 16 and kept her there against her will overnight, police said.

Winslow allegedly held her down inside a hotel room and took pictures of her naked body, police said.

He then asked the girl for sex but she refused and he would not let her leave the hotel room. Another person was also in the room and had removed the girl’s clothing, police said.

The girl was able to flee the hotel at around 11:50 a.m., police said.

Winslow was arrested about an hour later and charged with unlawful surveillance-sexual arousal, acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17, and unlawful imprisonment, according to cops. He was then let go.
