A man in New York, was arrested after allegedly raping a woman.
The 26-year-old woman went to the home of 31-year-old Heng Yue, who lived in a third floor apartment in College Point, Queens, at 9:00 p.m.
When she asked to leave, Yue refused to let her go and raped her, police said.
After the attack, the victim escaped to a second floor apartment, where the suspect’s mother lived and asked the woman for help.
However, Yue told his mother not to let the victim leave.
“She will tell the police that I raped her,” he said, according to court documents.
In a desperate attempt to escape the clutches of the suspect and his mother, she jump out the window. She was slightly hurt and called police.
Yue was being held in jail without bail on charges of rape and sexual abuse. Authorities suddenly offered to drop the charged from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Authorities said that the victim returned to her hometown in China, and therefore, she could not testify against the man, a spokesperson for the District Attorney’s Office said.
Judge Kenneth Holder sentenced Yue to 364 days in prison. He has already spent half of the time while awaiting trial.
