Passengers Turn Away as Woman is Openly Raped on Philadelphia Train

Police say that commuters sat by and ignored it as a man openly raped a woman on a Philadelphia train. None of them even called 911, reports say.

The horrible crime occurred around 10 p.m. last Wednesday, according to Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt of the Upper Darby Police Department.

Per the New York Post:

“Were they watching? I don’t know. Again, we’re still going through the video but there was a lot of people, in my opinion, that should’ve intervened. Somebody should’ve done something.,” Bernhardt said, Philadelphia’s CBS-3 reported.

“It speaks to where we are in society; I mean, who would allow something like that to take place? So it’s troubling.”

Bernhardt said it was a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority employee who called the cops to report that “something wasn’t right” with a woman aboard the train.

SEPTA police waiting at the next stop were able to “apprehend the suspect in the act,” an agency spokesman said in a statement, according to NBC-10 Philadelphia.

They arrested Fiston Ngoy, 35, who is believed to be homeless, the station reported.

Ngoy was arrested and charged with rape, aggravated indecent assault and other charges.

The victim was taken to a hospital where she was treated and gave police a full statement.

SEPTA called the attack a “horrendous criminal act.” in a statement.

“There were other people on the train who witnessed this horrific act, and it may have been stopped sooner if a rider called 911,” the transit authority said.
