A man pleaded guilty Tuesday to raping an elderly woman in Central Park last year.

It happened on September 12, 2012 near Strawberry Fields.

David Mitchell, 43, admitted knocking the 73-year-old victim to the ground, sexually assaulting her and stealing her camera bag.

He's set to be sentenced on October 16 on rape and robbery charges, and faces at least 25 years in prison.

He also pleaded guilty to pulling a knife on a man in the park in a separate incident just weeks before.
