Child raped at knifepoint in park, NYPD says

A migrant is in NYPD custody after being a person of interest in connection to the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl last week in Queens. During a press conference on Tuesday, police said Christian Geovanny Inga-Landi, a 25-year-old from Ecuador, entered the country illegally in 2021 near Eagle Pass, Texas, with his three-year-old child. After police released surveillance video showing him near the scene of the crime, tips started pouring in, police said. Ultimately, a group of at least 10 neighbors swarmed him and held him until police arrived around 1 a.m. Tuesday.
