Bronx man arrested after sexually assaulting three women: Report

News & Politics

A man who apparently attempted to sexually assault three women in separate attacks in Manhattan on December 31 was taken into custody, according to the New York Daily News.

On Thursday morning, the authorities arrested Christopher Marrero, 23, for the alleged attacks that took place on New Year’s Eve. He is now facing charges of sexual abuse, attempted sexual abuse, and attempted rape, per the report.

As a result, Marrero was held on $50,000 cash bail or $75,000 bond at his arraignment on Friday.

The first attack took place mid-morning when Marrero targeted a 21-year-old woman who was riding on the train. He apparently stared at her for an extended amount of time before following her as she transferred trains and eventually left Union Square subway station.

As the woman was walking, Marrero apparently snatched her by the arm and tried to drag her into a blocked off alleyway, according to the police. The incident took place in broad daylight, according to a second report.

However, the woman managed to break away from Marrero and ran off.

Marrero targeted a second victim less than two hours later, around noon. This time, a 24-year-old woman stepped into a bathroom at a business when Marrero quickly forced his way into the restroom right behind her. He pushed her face up against the door as he tried to rip her pants off.

The woman was somehow able to escape the situation, and Marrero ran off. It does not appear anyone attempted to stop Marrero after the incident.

Marrero assaulted a third woman just two hours after that, around 2:00 p.m. The third victim — a 24-year-old woman — was inside an apartment building on E. 18th St. First Ave in Stuyvesant Town, a large residential apartment complex near Union Square.

He, again, grabbed the woman by her waist from behind and apparently forced her against a wall before pushing his groin up against her buttocks, according to the criminal complaint.

The woman screamed, which led to a passerby approaching Marrero and the victim.

Marrero reportedly ran off before the passerby engaged.

The NY Daily News reported that none of the victims were physically harmed in the incidents.

This was apparently not Marrero’s first crime. He was previously arrested three times over a two-week span back in July for assault and criminal mischief charges, according to the authorities.

Jail records indicated that he now faces charges brought in the Bronx, according to the report.

It is not clear what punishment Marrero could face if he’s found guilty of the charges.
