Bridgeport rapist sentenced to 28 years

The 19-year-old man dubbed the Black Rock Rapist will spend the next 28 years in prison.

A judge sentenced Terrance Easton Friday.

Police say Easton broke into an apartment in Bridgeport's Black Rock neighborhood and raped a woman at gunpoint in 2010.

They say Easton's fingerprints were found at the home and connected him to another rape in the neighborhood months before.

Police say they suspected Easton in at least two other rapes, but did not have enough evidence to charge him.
