New York (The Gaslamp Post) – Police say that they’ve apprehended their prime suspect in an attack and rape of a college student back in September. Authorities arrested 33-year-old Juan Martinez, an illegal alien, this past Monday and charged him first-degree rape and committing a criminal sexual act.
According to the New York Post, a Manhattan college student had returned to her co-op at around 4:00 am on September 28, 2012, where she was ambushed in the dark while trying to enter her front door.
The 29-year-old victim told police that she was accosted by a man who told her, “We’re going to have sex the easy way or the hard way”. Her attacker forced her inside, pinned her down, and then raped and sodomized her.
Martinez, who was also wanted on an immigration violation, is being held on $5000 bond at Rikers Island. He faces 25 years in prison if convicted.
