The NYPD are looking for a man who they believe raped a 21-year-old woman in the Bronx. The victim says that she responded to a modeling ad on craigslist. After going to meet the man at the Paradise Motor Inn on Boston Rd., the victim tried to leave before the suspect raped her.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at nypdcrimestoppers.com
Police on Thursday released photos and videos of the suspect, and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
What I refer to as the modeling scam is one of the more preferred tricks in the online sexual predator’s arsenal. Mostly, I’ve posted about how it’s used to target underage girls, but it’s not unheard of being used to target adults. Again, if you have such aspirations you probably should avoid craigslist since anybody can say that they’re a modeling agent considering that the ads are free.
