Watch: When the Government Fails to Uphold Justice in NY, the People Take Justice into Their Own Hands

The man accused of tying up and raping a 13-year-old girl last week at Kissena Park in Queens is in custody and faces a slew of charges, police said Tuesday.

NYPD officials say Christian Geovanny Inga-Landi, 25, faces rape, robbery, kidnapping, sex abuse, menacing, unlawful imprisonment and other charges. He was taken into custody early Tuesday morning after police said community members recognized him and called 911.

The 25-year-old illegal immigrant has been arrested in connection with the “horrific” rape of a 13-year-old girl after people in New York City recognized him from images circulated by police, held him possibly with a belt and roughed him up after he fought with his captors, according to police.

“The community was holding our perp,” New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Joe Kenny said.

Dramatic video and photos show the fugitive cowering on the sidewalk as the angry mob pounds him and calls him out as “a rapist.”

“Where are you going? Where are you going?” a woman is heard screaming in Spanish while clutching his hair. “He’s a rapist. He don’t care.”

The footage shows the suspect crawling under a parked car to get away from the mob, as bystanders keep screaming.

“He’s under the car. He’s hiding under the car because we beat the s–t out of him,” the woman yells as cops show up.

“Beat his a*s,” she adds.

One man is heard asking in the background, “Where my 10,000 at?” — a reference to the reward offered by the NYPD for the arrest.

One of the civilians said he waited for the suspect, identified as Christian Geovanny Inga-Landi, to come out of a deli on 108th Street — a few blocks from the park — after recognizing him from police wanted posters and surveillance video released by the NYPD.
