Phony West Village 'samaritan' indicted for rape and assault
Alleged predator Ivan Ramos, 22, accused of raping a disoriented woman in the West Village after falsely telling her was a Neighborhood Watch member and escorting her to a bank to obtain cash, was indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney Wednesday on multiple charges.
Ramos, who lives in Brooklyn, was charged with multiple counts of first degree rape and criminal sexual assault, second degree assault and criminal possession of stolen property. When arrested, Ramos still had the victim’s ATM card in his possession, according to published reports.
At 6 a.m. April 15, Ramos took the woman, who had lost her cell phone and money, to an ATM and told her to give him her card on the pretext of helping her to withdraw cash for a taxi, said prosecutors. When she refused, and asked to be taken to a police precinct instead, Ramos instead led her to a deserted exterior stairwell on Perry St. and brutally attacked her, according to the Manhattan DA
