New York (CNN) -- A New York City Fire Department emergency medical technician has been arrested and charged with armed sexual assaults, including sodomizing an 11-year-old in an elevator, police said.

Angus Pascall, 33, of Brooklyn, was charged Tuesday in connection with five sexual assaults. One assault dates back to 2001, when a woman was raped after a man approached her with a gun as she entered her apartment building, New York City police said.

Two of the victims were minors, including the 11-year-old girl, who was attacked in her apartment building elevator earlier this month, police said. The other was a 14-year-old girl who was attacked in 2009 at the rear of her apartment building by a man with a knife and gun. The girl fought back and the attacker fled the scene.

The fire department told CNN Pascall has been suspended without pay.
