Man, 35, 'rapes' a woman on a train in Philadelphia while riders 'watched on and did NOTHING' to stop himOctober 17, 2021
A PENNSYLVANIA man has been arrested for raping a woman on public transportation while other riders watched.
Fiston Ngoy, 35, was identified by police as the alleged perpetrator.
Despite others being on the train during the assault, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt said that it was a train employee who phoned 911.
Ngoy was arrested on the spot by Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority [SEPTA] officers on Wednesday.
Bernhardt had said it was “disturbing” to know that people had seen the assault happening and nobody stepped up to help.
“I have no words for it. I just can’t imagine seeing what you were seeing through your own eyes,” he said.
SEPTA issued a statement on the assault.
“There were other people on the train who witnessed this horrific act, and it may have been stopped sooner if a rider called 911,” said spokesman Andrew Busch.
“SEPTA urges anyone who observes a crime being committed or any dangerous situation occurring to report it.”
Ngoy, who was charged with rape and assault, will stay in jail due to being unable to post bail.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries as a result of the attack.
