A woman was raped on the train in Philadelphia while other passengers watched and did nothing, in an attack that the police called “disturbing”, NBC 10 reports. The suspect was arrested at the scene after employees finally intervened.
Fiston Ngoy was arrested after he attacked the woman on a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) train in the Philadelphia suburbs last week.
It’s disturbing that there were definitely people on the L, and no one intervened or did anything to help this woman out,’ Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt said.
‘I have no words for it. I just can’t imagine seeing what you were seeing through your own eyes and seeing what this woman was going through that no one would step in and help her.’
A SEPTA spokesperson said, “There were other people on the train who witnessed this horrific act, and it may have been stopped sooner if a rider called 911.”
Clique, can you believe other people just watched as this happened?
