Crime Rape Rapist

Riders watched as a woman was raped on a SEPTA train but no one called 911, police say.

This is beyond disturbing on every level. I absolutely have no words for it. I can`t for the life of me imagine witnessing this horrendous criminal act and won`t step in to help her or at least call 911 to stop the horrific act? I fully understand that the rage can sometimes be directed at the people who are trying to help the victims, but the least anyone who is afraid could do is call the cops for immediate help. Methinks, the horrific act may have stopped sooner if a rider had called 911. Anyone witnessing an emergency or a crime being committed and not calling the police immediately for help is the one big reason bad people continue to commit these senseless crimes regardless of the consequences.

What the hell is wrong with people?! The least they could have done was dial 911. The very least. This is disturbing on so many levels. It's extremely upsetting to know that that no one did anything to assist the victim in any manner. If they were afraid of being targeted, they could have stood up against this in unity. I'm stunned to silence. This makes me really sad, and I'm more disappointed in people than I've ever been.

``This is disturbing on so many levels.``  Yes, it is. I'm guessing there were people who were filming it on their phones while the victim was screaming for help. How horrible. I`m glad the offender was arrested. Here`s hoping they throw the book at him.

It's a sick world. The fact that no one stepped in to stop this, is just outright depressing to me. To let someone be raped, when you should be able to rely on bystanders to help. Especially on a train that sounds like it was packed with people. 

I understand some people may be scared to step up, but the more people who do, the better. Don't let the fear stop you from stepping in to help. How would you feel if it was your child in this situation and no one stepped in. You'd be furious. If you see something this horrible going down, please step in. Once you do, I bet more people would also step in.

`` How would you feel if it was your child in this situation and no one stepped in. You'd be furious`` Exactly my point.  It`s beyond gutting!

The fact that the assault lasted for about 40mins and no one stepped in to help or halt the assault or at least call 911 for help is beyond unbelievable and sickening to me.

``concerns me" no one stepped in throughout the lengthy assault that an arrest affidavit shows continued for about 40 minutes.

He noted surveillance footage captured the assault and appeared to show other passengers possibly recording the attack. "There were people witnessing the act with phones in their hands," Nestel said. "People were holding their phone up in the direction of this woman being attacked."
