Last week, police in New York City arrested Fermin Flores, 32, after he reportedly stalked, then raped a young woman in her East Village apartment.

On Jan. 13, Flores grabbed the woman from behind as she was entering her apartment on E. Seventh Street in Manhattan, according to police.

Once inside, the Mexican national pinned the 22-year-old victim to the floor and raped her as she cried out for help.

The New York Post reported:

The defendant followed her home pushed his way into her building and sexually assaulted her in various ways," said Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Maxine Rosenthal.

The woman was transported to Beth Israel Hospital for medical treatment, following the brutal attack.

A security camera captured images of Flores lurking in the hallway, waiting for the woman to open the door to her apartment.

Despite his illegal status in this country, Flores works as a cashier at a Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, known as San Loco.
