Good Samaritan Saves
At around 1:45 am on January 16, a 22-year-old woman was attacked on the corner of East 189th Street and Belmont Avenue across the street from a mosque.
A man came up to the woman and put her in a choke hold. He then proceeded to drag her for a block. Suddenly a Good Samaritan confronted the attacker. He dropped his victim and fled.
Police arrested 37-year-old Martin Estrada who lives a block away from the site.
Estrada was charged with Attempted Rape, Unlawful Imprisonment and Attempted Assault.
