A Revere man was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing next week on whether he should be held even longer following his arrest on a charge he raped a sleeping woman over two hours at the State Street T stop Friday night.
According to Suffolk County prosecutors, Luis Salinas-Ibanez, 33, came upon the woman around 10:30 p.m., only moments after she had laid down on a station floor to sleep. He then proceeded to rape her repeatedly over the next two hours, prosecutors say.
A T employee who was watching live video feeds from T stops spotted him on camera attacking her around 12:30 a.m. and immediately contacted Transit Police, according to the DA's office.
Responding officers located the victim inside the station. She reported that she had awoken multiple times to a male pulling down her pants and touching her without consent. She was able to provide a description of the man before being transported to Massachusetts General Hospital.
Transit Police posted the suspect's picture a few hours later; prosecutors say people immediately contacted police with his identity and workplace.
Officers located Mr. Salinas-Ibanez at his workplace at 12:19 p.m. – two hours after the release of the surveillance image. He allegedly made statements to police identifying himself in the security footage.
