A 35-year-old man was arrested for raping a woman on board a public train in northeast Philadelphia as other riders watched and did nothing to help the victim, police said. 

Police identified Fiston Ngoy, of Philadelphia, through surveillance footage that caught him sexually assaulting a woman Wednesday night aboard a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) train towards the town of Upper Darby.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt said that while there were other people on the train, it was ultimately a SEPTA employee who made the call to 911, which allowed officers to arrest Ngoy on the spot. 

‘It’s disturbing that there were definitely people on the L, and no one intervened or did anything to help this woman out,’ Bernhardt told NBC 10.

‘I have no words for it. I just can’t imagine seeing what you were seeing through your own eyes and seeing what this woman was going through that no one would step in and help her.’ 

What happened in the train?

Police said Fiston Ngoy, of Philadelphia, through surveillance footage that caught him sexually assaulting a woman Wednesday night aboard a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) train towards Upper Darby.

SEPTA and Upper Darby Township Police investigators said a surveillance camera on the train captured the assault.

Police said Ngoy first sat next to the woman and tried to touch her. The woman pushed him away several times before he pushed her down, ripped her clothes off, and sexually assaulted her, police said.

Investigators said the assault went on for eight minutes, and no other riders tried to stop the attack or call the police. Some may even have videoed the rape themselves, police said.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Tim Bernhardt said the woman went into shock and was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for her injuries.

“The victim, I spoke with her this afternoon,” Bernhardt said. “She is an unbelievably strong woman. She came forward, she provided a lot of information, and she’s on the mend.”

Bernhardt said viewing the surveillance footage was shocking.

“It’s disturbing that there were definitely people on the [train] and no one did anything to intervene or help this woman,” he said, according to WCAU.

Authorities Statements

Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt of the Upper Darby Police Department said officers were called to the 69th Street terminal around 10 p.m. Wednesday after the assault on the westbound train on the Market-Frankford Line.

An employee of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority who was in the vicinity as the train went past called police to report that “something wasn’t right” with a woman aboard the train, Bernhardt said.

SEPTA police waiting at the next stop found the woman and arrested a man. The woman was taken to a hospital.

Bernhardt called the victim an “unbelievably strong woman” who provided police with a lot of information. She did not know her attacker, he said.

“She’s on the mend,” Bernhardt said. “Hopefully she will get through this.”

The entire episode was captured on surveillance video that showed other people on the train at the time, Bernhardt said.

“There was a lot of people, in my opinion, that should have intervened; somebody should have done something,” Bernhardt said. “It speaks to where we are in society; I mean, who would allow something like that to take place? So it’s troubling.”
