Spring Valley woman fights off kidnappers
A local woman managed to escape after being kidnapped, thrown into a car and sexually assaulted for two hours Wednesday morning, police say.
According to authorities, the incident occurred when the 26-year-old victim was returning from a friend?s house and walking alone on Bethune Boulevard.
That is when police say the woman?s ex-boyfriend, 27-year-old Wenceslas Louissaint, and his friend, 25-year-old Ryan Bordeau, of Nanuet, abducted her. Bordeau, who was behind the wheel, slowed down and Louissaint got out of the car, grabbed the woman and threw her into it back seat.
?She was struck in the face several times,? says Sgt. Lou Scorziello, of the Spring Valley Police Department. ?At one point, the suspect grabbed her by the head and attempted to have her perform oral sex.?
But the woman, who only weighs 100 pounds, jumped into the front seat and beat the driver after the alleged kidnappers found her cell phone and threw it out of the car. Soon after, the two men decided to let her go, throwing her out of the moving vehicle in Nanuet.
After the incident, Louissant fled to Long Island, but turned himself in less than 24 hours later. Police found Bordeau hiding under a pile of laundry at a friend?s house in Rockland County and took him into custody. Both men were charged with kidnapping, robbery and assault.
