A woman was raped yesterday, at around 10pm while on a semi-crowded El Train, MTO News has learned. And the passengers not only allowed the rape to happen. MTO News learned that some passengers actually pulled out their phones and live-streamed the assault onto social media.
MTO News was sent alleged videos of the assault, but we are not going to post them here.
Upper Darby Police Supervisor Tim Bernhardt told reporters on Friday that the alleged assault happened around 10 p.m. on a westbound train destined for the 69th Street Terminal.
According to police, a SEPTA employee called police to report that "something wasn't right" with a female passenger aboard the incoming train. SEPTA police responded to the terminal and took 35-year-old Fishton Ngoy into custody.

The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment and is said by police to be "on the mend." Officer Bernhardt called the victim an "unbelievably strong woman" and commended her bravery for speaking with police about the assault.
The alleged rapist, Fishton Ngoy is facing charges including rape, sexual assault and indecent assault.
Ngoy, who police believe may be homeless, has been charged with rape, incident assault, sexual assault and numerous other charges. He is being held at a Delaware County jail on a $180k bail.
Officer Bernhardt also said there were "a lot of people" aboard the train that he believes could have stopped the assault.
"There were a lot of people, in my opinion, that should have intervened," Bernhardt said. "Somebody should have done something, it speaks to where we are in society, who would allow something like that to take place?"
