J’can teen in NY arrested for fondling women
KINGSTON, Jamaica – A Jamaican teenager was on Monday arrested and charged with sexual abuse in Brooklyn, New York.
Nineteen- year-old Damario Johnson was reportedly caught in the act fondling a woman in a downtown Brooklyn subway station Monday morning.
Johnson, who is on a student visa in the country, is said to have groped four other women, one last Wednesday, another on Thursday and two on Friday.
According to media reports, Johnson told police that he committed the act because he had never seen white women before and “they’re absolutely beautiful” .
Three of the victims reported the crimes at NYPD transit offices, while a fourth submitted a complaint through an “MTA portal” website, said NYPD Captain Zahid Williams.
“It’s a very distinctive crime, a very, very distinctive method of committing this crime,” Williams said. He targeted women in their 20s to 40s, he said.
