Vigilantes Helped Take Down the Queens Rapist

A vigilante in Queens -- as well as others in the bodega -- helped take down the alleged Kissena Park rapist. June 18, 2024.

(Queens, NY) – Jeffrey Flores has two young sisters. He also has a baby girl on the way. And he says the thought of loved ones being victimized was on his mind when he stepped up on Tuesday and helped take down an alleged rapist. Flores told reporters he recognized the suspect — Christian Geovanny Inga-Landi — from surveillance camera photos shared in the news. He said they shopped at the same bodega.

So on Tuesday, Flores leapt into action, and dragged Inga-Landi from the store — shouting to other shoppers “this is the rapist.” He admits he hit the suspect several times before others helped subdue the man, before cops could arrive.

It was last Thursday in Flushing’s Kissena Park when Inga-Landi allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl after tying her and her 13-year-old male friend up at knifepoint. He also allegedly stole their phones and warned the kids against telling authorities.

A massive police presence descended on the park and cops offered a $10,000 reward for help leading to the suspect’s arrest. The New York Post reports Inga-Landi, an illegal immigrant from Ecuador, had been ordered to be deported two years ago by an immigration judge. He reportedly lived at a nearby taxpayer-funded SRO shelter.
