Share:

NEW YORK CITY, NY – A man who is a registered sex offender who did three years in state prison for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl has been arrested and charged with raping two different women at a Bronx hotel.

The suspect, identified as Dashawn Williams, was released on parole over two years ago. He is now back behind bars on a $100,000 bail after being arrested for two alleged assaults at the 7 Days Hotel in Castle Hill.

Williams, who is 28-years-old, allegedly followed the first victim to her room back on September 17th. According to the criminal complaint filed by the Bronx District Attorney’s Office, he then jammed his foot in the door and forced his way into her room.

The court document said that he allegedly demanded money from her while holding a knife, forcing the woman to give him $1,200 in cash.

He is accused of forcing the woman to perform oral sex before raping her at knifepoint and then grabbing her phone and wiring himself another $200 through a cash app.

Williams allegedly then fled the scene, but came back to the hotel on November 8th after responding to a guest’s online ad; he went to her room around 6:00 a.m.

The criminal complaint states that he demanded money, again, this time wielding a hammer and waving it over his head while the woman handing over $1,700 in cash. He allegedly demanded:

“Is that everything? I am going to hurt you if it’s not everything.”

Williams then allegedly wired himself another $149 from her phone through a cash app. The complain says that he then said:

“Get a condom so I can (expletive) you. Do it or I’m going to knock you out.”

Prosecutors said that when the victim refused, Williams forced her to perform oral sex and then raped her before fleeing.

On Saturday, November 26th, police found Williams and arrested him. He has been charged with third-degree rape, criminal sex act, and first-degree robbery on each of the two cases. He is being held on Rikers Island and is due back in court on Thursday, December 1st.

Online records show that Williams was sentenced to up to three and a half years on a first-degree attempted rape conviction for the case involving the teenage girl in 2015. However, he was released on parole back in September 2020.

In addition to that case, Williams has been arrested numerous times, including for aggravated harassment and criminal obstruction of breathing.

According to the New York Police Department (NYPD), a man is wanted for attempting to rape a woman onboard a moving subway train in Lower Manhattan.

Police said that the 24-year-old woman was on a moving northbound “4” train on Thursday, November 17th, around 11:25 p.m. when a man got on the train and sat next to her.

That is when, according to police, that the man removed his pants and underwear, and forcibly laid on top of the woman. The man touched the woman, but was unsuccessful in attempting to pull her skirt down.

Police said that the woman was able to safely get onto another train car and the man got off at the Bowling Green subway station in the Financial District of Manhattan, where he then boarded a ferry to Staten Island.

The suspect has been described as a man with a medium complexion, around 25-35 years old with dyed blonde hair and a right eyebrow piercing.

He was reportedly last seen wearing a black winter jacket with a fir trimmed hood, a gray “BMW” hooded sweatshirt, gray “BMW” sweatpants, and white sneakers. Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477.

In an update on the incident, Fox News reported that on Thursday, November 24th, the suspect, now identified as 23-year-old Chris Tapia, has been arrested and charged with attempted rape, sexual abuse, forcible touching, and public lewdness.

This alleged sexual assault comes amid a general uptick in violence on New York City subways. A woman and good Samaritan were injured on an L train pulling into the 14th Street Union Square station in Manhattan in what has been deemed an unprovoked attack.

Since 2020, there have been 21 killings in the New York City subway system. According to the data, the figure is more than the 20 murders recorded between 2008 and 2019.
