BPR: The man who is accused of raping a woman on a Philadelphia train as onlookers videoed the assault is reportedly an illegal Congolese immigrant who has been previously charged with sexual abuse and should have been deported in 2015.
The train was full of bystanders who watched and filmed the rape on board a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) train near the suburb of Upper Darby. No one called 911 or the police.
“When the doors opened, an officer entered and saw what he believed was a criminal act occurring,” SEPTA Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel III said. “He ripped that man off her and pulled him out onto the platform.” more here
