  • two counts of Unlawful Imprisonment in the Second Degree, class “A” Misdemeanors.

On June 3, 2016, at approximately midnight, the first victim, a female aged 42 from Mount Kisco, was at home in bed asleep when an unknown male intruder (who turned out to be the defendant) made entry into her bedroom and climbed on top of her.  In the course of a struggle, the defendant raped the victim. He then ran from the apartment but dropped a gray hat he was wearing.

On Aug. 21, 2016, at approximately 8 a.m., the second victim, a female aged 19 arrived at the Purdy’s train station via Metro North after spending time in New York City. As she walked through the stairwell and platform heading to the parking lot, she was approached by the defendant who attempted to engage her in conversation. The victim continued to walk towards a footpath leading to Route 116 and ignored the defendant. Upon entering the footpath, the defendant grabbed the victim, secured her to the ground and proceeded to grope her body attempting to remove her clothing. A passerby responded to the victim’s screams and prevented her rape. The defendant ran from the scene dropping an orange baseball cap he was wearing during this attack.

DNA results conducted from each baseball cap were entered with CODIS (Combined DNA Index System) and the cases were linked to each other.

The defendant was arrested on Sept. 9, 2016.

During today’s proceeding, he pled not guilty.

He is remanded.

If convicted, the defendant faces up to forty years in state prison.

His next court date is May 2, 2017.

This case is being prosecuted by Deputy Bureau Chief Michelle Lopez of the Sex Crimes Bureau.
