May 23, 2017 -- Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino Jr., announced today that Juan Sumba Duchi (DOB 04/08/84) of 22 Beech Street, Greenburgh, New York was sentenced by Judge Barbara Zambelli to twelve years in state prison after being found guilty by a jury of:

  • one count of Attempted Rape in the First Degree, a class “C” Felony,
  • one count of Assault in the Second Degree, a class “D” Felony,
  • one count of Assault in the Third Degree, a class “A” Misdemeanor.

On or about Dec. 22, 2015, at approximately 10 p.m., the defendant drove his ex-girlfriend, in his vehicle to an isolated parking lot located at 228 Fisher Ave., in the City of White Plains.

Once in the parking lot, the defendant demanded that the victim have sex with him.When the victim refused and begged the defendant to take her home, the defendant became enraged and attacked her, breaking her nose and then attempting to rape her in the car. The victim fought the defendant off and managed to get out from under him escaping from the vehicle.   

The defendant then set upon the victim again, kicking and punching her while she lay on the ground. While the defendant stomped on her, he broke her collarbone. A passerby heard the victim’s screams and called 911. Two other people who were in the vicinity came to the victim’s aid and pulled the defendant off of her. The police arrived within minutes and the defendant was apprehended at the scene.  

As part of the sentence, the defendant must register as a sex offender prior to his release from prison.

Assistant District Attorney Joyce Miller of the Special Prosecutions Division prosecuted the case.
