A violent rapist allegedly wished his 51-year-old victim a Merry Christmas before he attacked her.
Jose R. Roys, 37, reportedly made friendly conversation with his victim while they were both waiting for a bus at a secluded bus stop in the Bronx at around 6:20 a.m. on Christmas morning, reports the New York Post. She says he wished her a Merry Christmas before doing something horrific to her.
Police say Roys punched the woman in the face, dragged her to a more secluded area, and raped her before taking off with her pocketbook.
The suspect fled the scene and was caught early Friday morning by police, reports ABC 7. He has been charged with rape, robbery, criminal sex act and assault.
The victim was reportedly taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.
