The report continues:
The victim sustained bruising and swelling to her face but did not immediately report the incident to police, authorities said.
The NYPD’s Brooklyn Special Victims Unit was investigating the sexual assault, officials said Tuesday.
Since the report, there are posts on social media indicating that the man received a bit of street justice for the incident and is now with the police.
Y’all see how she’s dressed and yet she was still assaulted?
Ain’t no such thing as someone dressing to “ask for it” or dressing to avoid “it”.
A predator is gonna prey simply because the mood strikes them
