An 18-year-old pleaded guilty Tuesday to raping a woman in her Upper West Side apartment.

In September 2012, prosecutors say Cesar Lucas was delivering a pizza to a neighbor of the victim.

They say he then broke into her apartment and raped her while her child slept in the same bed.

Lucas was 16 at the time.

He also pleaded guilty to breaking into a second woman's home about a month earlier and stealing her wallet.

Lucas will be sentenced in June.

Sources say he's expected to get 13 years behind bars.

The Manhattan district attorney's office also noted that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and urged sexual assault victims to call the Sex Crimes Hotline at 212-335-9373.
