New York college student pretends to be autistic, scares off sexual offender like ‘she had seen on television’

A quick-thinking college student scared off a sexual deviant who broke into her New York dorm and exposed himself to her by pretending she had a developmental disorder, prosecutors say.

Ariel Caro, 32, was sentenced Tuesday to two and a half years in state prison on charges of first degree attempted sex abuse and second degree attempted burglary as a sexually motivated crime for the incident last year at Pace University’s Pleasantville campus.

The unidentified student reportedly heard knocking on her dorm room door on Sept. 11, 2018 at around 7:30 p.m. and, thinking it was someone else, she opened the door only to find Caro — who pushed his way in. Caro then closed the door behind him and began masturbating in front of her.

Fearing what might happen next, the student began to mimic the behavior of an autistic person that “she had seen on television,” the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.

“Using her wits, the student began to repeat a series of expressions, acting, she said, as if she suffered from a form of autism, as she had seen on television. As she got louder, he chose to flee,” the DA’s office said.
