Illegal Congolese National Rapes Woman on Philadelphia SEPTA Train as Passengers Watch

PHILADELPHIA, PA (October 20, 2021)--The Daily  Mail reported that a 35-year-old man was arrested for raping a woman on board a public train in northeast Philadelphia as other passengers watched. Some of those individuals appeared to 49256611-10099027-Fiston_Ngoy_was_arrested_for_raping_and_assault_a_woman_aboard_a-a-2_1634602583775 film the attack, and, they told police the encounter was consensual - despite the woman saying she had never met him before.  The incident happened on Wednesday, Oct. 13.

The attack happened on board a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) train towards the town of Upper Darby.

Ngoy, who gave his address as Philadelphia-based homeless shelter the Broad Street Ministry, is a Congolese national present in the US illegally. 

He entered the US on a student visa in 2012, but remained after the visa was terminated in 2015 and was protected from deportation by the immigration system despite multiple convictions as recent as this May.  Philadelphia is a "Sanctuary City" for immigrants here in the United States illegally. 

Court records show that Ngoy had multiple arrests dating back to 2015 and two misdemeanor convictions, one for controlled substances and one for sexual abuse.

He pleaded guilty to the sex charge in 2017 in Washington DC and was sentenced to 120 days in jail, and was then placed in immigration detention in January 2018.

However, Ngoy was never deported, because an immigration judge granted him a 'withholding of removal' in March 2019, after an appeals board found that his sex crime was not a 'serious crime' that made him eligible for removal.  Since then, Ngoy, has been free. Regarding last week's incident Ngoy was charged with rape and assault, and is being held at the Delaware County Prison in lieu of  $180,000 bail. He has a preliminary hearing on October 25 at 9am.
