Who is Fiston Ngoy and what did he do?

Fiston Ngoy, 35, was identified as the alleged perpetrator in an incident where a woman was raped on a train in Pennsylvania.

The attack, which began about 9.15pm EST, lasted over 40 minutes according to ABC 6.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt said it was a train employee who called 911.

Ngoy was arrested by Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority [SEPTA] officers on October 13.

Bernhardt had said it was “disturbing” to know people had seen the assault happening and nobody stepped up to help.

“I have no words for it. I just can’t imagine seeing what you were seeing through your own eyes,” he said.

What is Fiston Ngoy charged with?

Ngoy was charged with rape and assault.

He will stay in jail due to being unable to post bail.

Is the victim in hospital?

The victim of the attack was taken to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries.

Multiple witnesses held up their phones as the attack was carried out without intervening, according to reports.

Police do not believe a single witness on the train dialed 911.

Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt, of the Upper Darby Police Department, has saidpeople who recorded the attack and failed to intervene could possibly be charged, according to the New York Times.

"What we want is everyone to be angry and disgusted and to be resolute about making the system safer," SEPTA Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel III said at the news conference.

Elizabeth Jeglic, a psychology professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, told ABC 6 there are ways to help victims of sexual assault without physically intervening, like calling the police.

"When we have multiple people, people don't necessarily intervene," she said.

"However, more recent research actually suggests that looking at video footage of more extreme circumstances that up to 90% of cases we do see people intervening. So it was actually somewhat of an aberration in this case that somebody did not step forward to help this individual."

SEPTA declared the attack could have been stopped sooner had a witness dialed the police.
