Police are hunting for a man who allegedly drugged and raped his 13-year-old daughter's friends during sleepovers.

Dwayne Gordon is accused of sexually attacking three girls during sleepovers held at his Springfield Gardens home in New York between October 2020 and May 2021, according to the city's police department.

Police sources said the girls accused Gordon of drugging them with white pills, which caused them to become incapacitated during the attacks.

Issuing the urgent appeal, the authorities tweeted: "WANTED for RAPE! Have you seen Dwayne Gordon? He's wanted in connection to a rape in the Springfield Section in Queens between Oct 2020 to May 2021.

"This person raped three 13-year-old girls on separate occasions. If you have any info contact @NYPDTips or call [+1] 800-577-TIPS."

He has black hair and brown eyes.

Police also said the suspect speaks with a Jamaican accent.

April 2021 saw 110 reported rapes, an almost 53 per cent increase from April 2020. There have been 444 reported rapes so far this year.

However, the NYPD said that rape continues to be underreported as a spokesperson told the publication: "We acknowledge that rape is an underreported crime and we encourage victims and survivors to always please come forward."
