NYPD – Teleworld New York (47)

NEW YORK – A 46-year-old man has been arrested on charges of rape and robbery in connection with a bestial knifepoint attack on a 40-year-old woman in the Bronx earlier this week, authorities said Thursday.

Ramon Rotestan was captured and handcuffed early Thursday for the Monday incident at about 10 pm near Bolton Street and Lydig Avenue.

Police say he lives a few miles from where the attack took place.

Authorities said the suspect followed the victim, whom he did not know, to a residential building that night. The alleged predator followed her into an elevator, where he allegedly raped her at knifepoint and stole $112 from her, police said.

The woman was taken to NYC Health+Hospitals/Jacobi after the attack.

Information from Rotestan’s attorney was not immediately clear.
