Man Charged for the Sexual Assault of an Elderly Woman in Apartment Building
According to the New York Post, a man was charged for sexually assaulting a woman inside her apartment building’s laundry room.
Mario Pope, 25-years-old, sexually assaulted an 85-year-old woman in her building on Marine Avenue. The woman fought back, and Pope ran off.
Pope allegedly went to a park nearby and began following another woman. The cops responded and did not arrest him as he hadn’t committed a crime. However, their body cams caught Pope’s face.
When the woman who was assaulted in the laundry room called the cops, investigators profiled Pope as the same man in the park. Detectives found Pope near the apartment building and took him into custody.
Pope has been charged with attempted rape, burglary, sex abuse, forcible touching, and unlawful imprisonment. Pope has previous arrests that are sealed, including trespassing and assault in 2018.
