Police arrested Tonye Iketubosin, a 26-year-old Crown Heights man, after two women report two separate assaults to the New York Police Department, the official said.
One of the women, an 18-year-old Massachusetts native, told police that she got into an argument with the male friend with whom she was sharing a tent at about 6 a.m. Saturday. She left and met Iketubosin, the official said. He offered to let her sleep in his tent, saying he had to go work in the park’s makeshift kitchen.
The alleged victim took Iketubosin up on his offer and went to sleep. But she said she soon awoke to find Iketubosin removing her pants, the official said. She told police she asked him to stop, but he didn’t comply. Then he raped her, the official said.
Charges are pending on this incident but he has already been charged with third-degree sexual abuse over another incident involving a 17 year old woman at the site. There is a website out there with a photo of someone named Tonye Iketubosin. The age fits but I’m not going to post it because I can’t be sure it’s him.
Please notice that Tonye Iketubosin is the average age of the other protesters and had a job in the camp kitchen. I say this because in every case where a sex assault is reported, the occupiers immediately blame the assault on a homeless transient.
How many more rapes and assaults do we have to allow before police decide it’s time to clean up this squatters camp?
Occupy campsites are not a safe environment for women.

He concluded that sexual assault in Zuccotti Park “is much more wide spread than even they [the activists] think.”
