More details released in Flushing rape


From the Daily News:

The young woman was returning from grocery shopping in downtown Flushing around 9:30 p.m. Saturday when a drunken Queens man smashed her in the head with a pipe and dragged her into an alley, authorities said.

Once inside the alley along 41st Road, Carlos Salazar Cruz, 28, removed the woman's clothing from the waist down and raped her with the pipe, according to court papers.

Two months ago, the young woman, who dreamed of becoming a lawyer, traveled from her native China on a student visa. She moved in with a distant uncle in Flushing.

"She was working in a nail salon, saving up money. She was going to start attending school," said Assemblywoman Grace Meng (D-Flushing). "She had good grades in China. That's why her parents wanted her to come and expand her horizons."

Now, the woman who once dreamed of a better future is in the intensive care unit at New York Hospital Queens. She suffered a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain and trauma to her vaginal area.

Meng said she and Rep. Gary Ackerman (R-Bayside) are working to expedite a visa for the woman's mother. Cops collared Cruz a few blocks from the crime scene after a witness, who saw him drag the woman into the alley and then emerge alone - called 911. Police later recovered the pipe about a block from the alley.

Cruz, who did not have a criminal record, emigrated from Mexico two years ago and found work at a Manhattan fish market.

He was arraigned late Tuesday on a slew of charges, including a top count of attempted murder. Prosecutors vowed to upgrade charges if the woman is removed from life-support.

Cruz's family said he claims he blacked out drunk and doesn't remember the incident.

How could SHE be here legally if she came on a student visa and was not currently enrolled???

If an illegal alien rapes an illegal alien, was a crime committed?

Queens Crapper said...

She had to show she was accepted by a school in order to come here on a student visa. If she came 2 months ago, classes won't begin for her until the fall.

Previous commenter definitely an asshole.

So it won't be the "insanity" defense but the "I was smashed and I forgot" defense. Self-induced amnesia? Pretty low! How about "I was possessed by El Diablo?"

But seriously, 1 Chinese girl's life is equal to about 20 Mexican lives. I hope he gets life.

How does student visa ----> working at a nail salon????

Does that mean all one has to do to get into this country is "show a letter" saying that you got into Queensborough Community College?

Bullshiat.


I went overseas to study for my masters degree. My student visa was for The DAY BEFORE class started and expired the DAY AFTER.

We were told, in no uncertain terms that if we overstayed that date, they WILL come and get you.

Oh, and the Visa also stated that i was in NOT WAY to seek employment while in the host country, or i would get BOOTED.

Queens Crapper said...

Can I ask why you care so much about the immigration status of the victim? She was fucking murdered.

If she was here as a tourist, would you be outraged?

Someones's life is ruined because of an asshole that deserves to DIE. I hope and pray that they rape this jerk every single day in jail. Just because he's from Mexico doesn't mean he's illegal! Yes, many of them are, but what about the those that came here llegaly? Now should this guy suffer? Yes Death penaltly (if we had it?) Yes! Gang raped in jail w/o lubricants? Hell yes!
The way this article was written says that this lady was here on a student visa. Was she working illegally? I would say yes, b/c they did not mention anything about a "work visa" What I'm trying to point out here is that Mexicans are not the only ones that break the "immirations laws" Unfortunately it seems like the majority of them do, but we should not judge all of them . I really hope people are questioning people's legal status b/c of the recent Arizona Law and not b/c they are more concerned about a legal status.

Now going back to this piece of shit that raped this girl, these are the times I wish I was a correction officer at a prison. I will dedicate my days making sure people like this suffer. My thoughts and prayers go out to this young lady and her family.

If he wasn't here illegally, the crime would not have happened. If she wasn't here illegally, he would have raped someone else.

Queens Crapper said...

We all know that there are people here illegally other than Mexicans.

We all know there are Mexicans that come here legally.

We also know that most illegals are Mexican.

Whether this piece of shit is or isn't legal has relevance because if it turns out that he is illegal, that shows what happens when you don't screen who comes in and declare yourself a sanctuary city. Someone's life is over needlessly because we were negligent.

We are not negligent. We know exactly what they are doing.

If the girl had a valid student visa and worked off the books she shouldn't be considered a criminal, she just violated one of the terms of her visa. Many American students do off the books work to earn extra money. It sounds like she was a good person. I hope she survives.

Anonymous said...

What's this "we" shit Kemo Sabe? Please don't fall for that collective liberal guilt. It's not my job to screen illegals; and I don't think it's yours, either. But if it is, then you're doing a lousy job!

Anonymous said...

wait a few weeks until all the details of both "immigrants" are revealed before jumping to conclusions. at this point lets pray that the young lady survives. it does not sound good according to the press reports.

according to the press ackerman is a republican.
sometimes their reporting is questionable.

btw, copies of this attack should be sent to the governor of Arizona. she is absolutely protecting her constituents,unlike the n.y.c. "quislings" of the"sanctuary city".

Ditto alllllll that.

I'm sorry the girl was raped and died. I was sorry before I knew her status, and I'm still sorry now that I know it. However, I don't buy for a second that she was here legally, nor do I buy that she was working legally if there's any credence to her student visa story.

Queens Crapper said...

And what the fuck does it matter?

You really are a bunch of assholes.

If it wasn't she that was raped by this lowlife, it could have been your mother, sister, wife or daughter.

Please stop acting like idiot commenters distracted by nonsense.

Fucking shit, blank out after consume alcohol? So if one day I take some sleeping pills and happen to cut the fucking mexican into multiple pieces; And then when i wake up, I wish I could resemble those pieces of shit into the whole fucking mexican. I hope I could be there and crush this fucking shit into a pancake with my car

let's just drop the whole thing...we wouldn't want to cause a ruckus...that's life i guess, oh well...let's just see what john liu does when he becomes mayor...it might be okay...i'm sure he'll fix it...i'm sure of it...he seems like a great guy

i'm sure all the single family homes won't get knocked down in favor of brick boxed monstrosities filled with the huddled illegal masses who pay no taxes and couldn't care less about the block...it's diversity we need and they most likely won't park vans everywhere and run business out of the basement apartments...it'll be okay, the politicians will look out for us

or we could come out of the shadows, organize, build up our numbers and tell our politicians ...nahh

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us..."

What is going on in our city? We have folks who ignore a major crime in progress, it it because this community is so underground that it cannot contact the authorities? These potential witness must be sought and determine what occurred to the victim to put the animal away for life. Who are these folks both the victim and criminal - are they here legally - why are they working if she is on a student visa - overstayed her visa maybe? And the crininal - is he here without papers, working - this guy is loose around the city all of this time? Who else has he committed crimes against?

"If an illegal alien rapes an illegal alien, was a crime committed?"

No matter what anyone's stance is on immigration that is the coldest statement I ever read. What is happening to us as a human race?

Anonymous said...

Now if the fish market and nail salon's owners were arrested for hiring people not holding visas which allow them to work here, then all employers would eventually get the message.

If that were in place, perhaps our victim and our perpetator would have returned to their homes, and then an alien with a work visa or citizen would be working at the fish market and at the nail salon.

to support the governor of Arizona to keep illegal aliens out of America.

SEE: secure our borders.org

and sign the petition.

the immigration law of Mexico is more strict than that of the U.S.A.

this flushing rape/vicious attack is not the first committed by illegal aliens .do you recall the gang rape in flushing meadow park or the body part removal murder of the asian woman recently?

it is time to really secure our borders.

Illegal or not illegal, a tragic crime like this should never be tolerated. He could have raped anyone, any race, ANYBODY. So being illegal or not illegal should not be the case of this discussion.


This story is just too sad..

This is absolutely the most horrible statement I ever heard, I am now not surprised this is happen and people like you just stood there. Remember, "What goes around, comes around"!!

For the people that heard her screams and did nothing!!! They are just as guilty as the ILLEGAL Perp!!!
I'm so sorry for this young girl.
And I'm really sad for this community:( look at what it's become,look at how uncivilized people are:( PATHETIC

I don't think this is an issue about race or legal status. It's about a human being committing an awful crime to another human being. Period.

People who keep pressing on the issue of race and legal status show they are truly blinded by their hatred of illegal immigrants. Don't be consumed with hatred to a degree that you can't even mourn the lost of a human soul.

May God have mercy on us all.

PS163 said...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say the commentary concerning the victims status isn't in the vein of "she got what she deserved" but more of an overall frustration. Everyone's safety is affected because illegals rarely call the cops, intervene or have the sense of community to 'protect their turf'.

So, when shit like this happens, somewhere in your head you go 'well at least it wasn't one "of us"' - yes fucked up thinking, no one really wants anyone raped and murdered (except the a-hole attacker) but we are so tired of illegals everywhere getting away with flaunting the laws and a bunch of bleeding hearts feeling bad for them proposing amnesty that as comic relief - "If an illegal alien rapes an illegal alien, was a crime committed?" becomes funny - like when you laugh at something in a horror movie.

TO IDIOT ANONYMOUS:

You think just because an illegal alien committed a crime against another legal alien that it's alrite? After the way he brutally assaulted her that led to her death? So I guess if your black and I'm black and I shoot you, I guess that's ok? And it'll negate each offense out? A person is a person in the end. How can one person do such whether he or she was an immigrant and think that it's alrite to get away with it? Or even give an excuse that he was drunk and passed out? I'm sure they've done necessary DNA tests to know that his semen was probably all over her. This is a disgrace.

On another note, I agree that people around any neighborhood might be scared to help someone who's getting brutally beaten??? NOT! What if that was your mom, or even your sister and you come home to wait till wee hours and have her never come home. What if that was your sister on the news. Would you really be saying that since it's an illegal alien v. illegal alien then it's ok??

I'm proud to be a US citizen but GOD DAMN YA people have no balls to protect each other.

Queens Crapper said...

He sexually assaulted her with a pipe is what I understand. If he was as drunk as has been reported, he probably couldn't have raped her himself.

Anonymous said...

some people are ridiculous to comment the victim's status being in USA. Is it important to find out if she was illegal or not? SHE WAS RAPED AND MURDERED! Is it okay this horrible incidents happen to any illegal immigrants? If she got in the country with her student visa, she was eligible to enter the country sometime before the school started. Whoever commented her enter date of this country should have checked with the immigration law first or it just made yourself sound stupid. What we are concerned now should be the hear-broken parents. They lost their only child. Try to put this situation to yourself and feel about the pain and think if you should discuss more about the legal immigration status. At last, I'm terribly shamed of whoever witnessed but ignored the rape and murder. I HATE their guts. I hope they can sleep at night.

I saw a lot of hatemongers here. If I call you animals animals will protest against.
A girl was so brutally murdered. The very thought of the nature of the murder brings shock and sorrow to your mind.
The comments by the "animals" bring me shame I ask God "Why you have given me this life to live in the world where these animals live?"
My cooworker who is a Mexican (Don't worry. Legal),crying,asked me to read the news and said "she was of my daughter's age".Now I thank God for this life on earth where there are also people who can think above race and reflects God's love
I am so sad America is still filled with born (UN) Americans.

All those who think the girl was at fault in any possible way are expressing their frustrations against all illegal migration and diluting the issue at hand. The heinous crime has been committed and it should not be confused with any immigration issue.
