NYC Homeless Man Charged With Raping and Robbing Female Jogger Had 25 Prior Arrests

NYC Homeless Man Charged With Raping and Robbing Female Jogger Had 25 Prior Arrests

“was wanted in at least two other recent sexual assaults and has 25 prior arrests, according to the NYPD”

A female jogger in her 40s was assaulted, raped, and robbed in New York City this week by a homeless man who is also a repeat offender with 25 prior arrests.

This is another example of the massive crime problem in New York that Democrat leaders in the city and state insist isn’t happening.

FOX News reports:

NYC homeless man arrested in jogger’s sexual assault is alleged serial rapist with 25 priors

A homeless man arrested for allegedly choking a woman partially unconscious and sexually assaulting her while she jogged in New York City’s West Village on Thursday morning was wanted in at least two other recent sexual assaults and has 25 prior arrests, according to the NYPD.

Carl Phanor, 29, was arrested on Thursday afternoon and charged with predatory sexual assault, criminal sex act, strangulation, robbery, and grand larceny.

He is accused of attacking a 43-year-old woman while she jogged around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday near West Street and Pier 45, knocking her to the pavement and choking the victim before raping her.

According to WABC-TV, the suspect then approached another female jogger who called 911. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Police picked up Phanor at Port Authority later in the morning after he allegedly used the victim’s credit card at a Midtown Target department store.

How many more chances should Mr. Phanor get before he is locked up for a very long time?

This report on some of Phanor’s previous crimes is from two weeks ago:

Now would be a good time to review this viral moment from the New York governor debate between Lee Zeldin and Kathy Hochul:

Crime is out of control and people have had it.

It’s one thing to cut some kid a break for a first time non violent offense. If we can see that the person is salvageable and can be redeemed and reformed into a productive member of society then sure cut them a break.

It’s not OK for adults who are habitual offenders not to be imprisoned. They had an opportunity and failed. Eff them and their advocates who wail about how locking them up is somehow ineffective. At a minimum they are locked away from broader society and unable to commit crimes against society while in prison.

this is not the fault of the police–they likely know this perp very well–25 priors, lord–this is the fault of a da’s office that’s deliberately turning a blind eye to serious crimes–have to admire the nypd officers for getting up, putting on a badge and going to work every morning in such an environment

on a personal note–regard rape as being right there with attempted/or committed murder–the victims comprise over half our population–know two survivors well and can say that the crime is devastating–to cut this guy loose with TWO prior assaults/attempted rapes is just beyond my understanding–why this guy is still alive is another mystery

    “why this guy is still alive is another mystery” because the women of NYC have been trained out of self-defense in any manner, including to think that guns are icky.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Morning Sunshine. | November 4, 2022 at 7:16 pm

      Or, accurately, that using a gun to defend themselves will place them behind bars, or in debt for the rest of their life for a good self-defense lawyer.

      Most of us can’t afford justice. If we could, far more of us would carry.

    25 priors??? It is like the success rate of socialism; “we’ll get it right this time” as people die.

    It’s not clear if he was cut loose with TWO prior assaults/attempted rapes, or if the cops hadn’t found him to arrest him for those two crimes yet. For all I can tell from the reporting, this guy might have a long record of busts for jaywalking and sleeping on a park bench, but only recently turned to serious crimes. Then once the victims identified him from his mugshots, the cops had the difficult job of finding a man with no address, living somewhere in NYC. If he was aware enough to avoid his usual hangouts, that could take a very long time.

Math Teaser: What do you get when you multiply his number of prior arrests by 3?

Answer: His IQ

I think this was his first arrest on a serious charge.

    Gosport in reply to Dennis. | November 4, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    Guess that depends on what one considers a serious charge.

    Phanor had been busted at least 25 other times for crimes including petit larceny, assault, drug possession and drug dealing. He was also slapped with charges in two previous attacks on women, one from March and the other from October.

    How to say “I didn’t read even the sub-headline, much less the post” without actually saying “I didn’t read even the sub-headline, much less the post.”

Plenty crimes in New York are committed by people who would have been locked up if it weren’t for the lefty politicians. I’m not sure if this was one of those.

When crime is subsidized by not enforcing the law, you get more crime.

Lots of it.

Have we achieved “equity” yet?

The alleged perp is black; he is a victim of racism, circumstance and societal inequities, and, thus can’t/shouldn’t be held criminally liable for his sociopath predations.

That’s the Dumb-o-crat line on criminality committed by “persons of color,” in a nutshell.

Fat_Freddys_Cat | November 4, 2022 at 12:37 pm

I suspect sooner or later people are going to not going to be able to take this any more, and then we’ll see episodes of “street justice” breaking out. That’s not good but it’s predictable.

And then leftist talking heads on cable will flail about and wail “Why is this happening? Must be far-right extremist social media posts!”

    Fat_Freddys_Cat in reply to Fat_Freddys_Cat. | November 4, 2022 at 12:38 pm

    I mean “people are not going to be able to take this…” Ugh could do with an edit function.

    Yeah, exactly. When Dumb-o-crat apapratchiks utterly and negligently fail in their basic civic responsibility to provide for societal order and public safety, all while enabling and coddling criminals, and, undermining law enforcement, vigilantism is inevitable. And, when that happens, the Dumbs will, as you observe, erupt in a new paroxysm of indignation as to why citizens possess the temerity to defend themselves against the predations of criminal thugs.

    Hey, Bernie Goetz may come out of retirement

    Sooner or later? Were you around for the 70s?

Arrests is how the homeless make a living.

When will he be released with no bond this time?

But New Yorkers can’t have guns even though the 2nd Amendment explicitly says they can.

Also, I wonder when Americans will get tired of black criminals.

    Peabody in reply to chrisboltssr. | November 4, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    The color of the criminal doesn’t matter, but they should all be treated the same—off the streets.

    Otto Kringelein in reply to chrisboltssr. | November 4, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    Also, I wonder when Americans will get tired of black criminals.

    They already are. It’s just that people are too scared to make their feelings known due to the fact they’ll be called “racists” and even less complimentary things if their feelings were to be made public.

Why is it liberals can’t see no consequences for your actions lead to this?

“The bike-riding suspect, identified late Wednesday as Carl Phanor, approached the 39-year-old victim around 6 a.m. March 27, 2022 on the Hudson River Greenway at Pier 40 near West and Clarkson streets, police said.

He then pushed her down, choked her, sexually assaulted her and swiped her cell phone – before taking off on his bike, cops said.”

From NYPost Apr 28, 2022

At that time he had 18 priors.

Every day that another violent crime is committed by a recidivist thug an denial of crime by the Democrats leads to more votes for Zeldin

Of those 25 arrests were any prosecuted at all? If so were the charges dismissed? (for whatever reason) Were they plead down? Was the fact he was homeless mean the DA decided serving him with the necessary papers was just not feasible so they declined prosecute? I am curious.

In the mornin’ you go gunnin’ /
For the man who stole your water /
And you fire ’til he is done in /
But they catch you at the border /
And the mourners are all sangin’ /
As they drag you by your feet /
But the hangman isn’t hangin’ /
And they put you on the street /
Yeah, you go back, Jack, and do it again /
Wheel turnin’ round and round /
You go back, Jack, and do it again…

These lyrics were originally set in the Old American West.
Now, like the cowboys around the campfire criticizing their salsa, we exclaim, “New York City…!”

I have felt for some time that a running total of criminal activity based on severity of crime should be kept, and that when a person hits a certain level, they should be permanently be removed from society.

This would improve quality of live and stop our gene pool from being further diluted.

The crime rate in NYC has become such an issue that yesterday evening Law and Order ran an episode focused on the consequences of endlessly catching and releasing. The writers for that series have never been notorious for their right-wing tendencies.

BierceAmbrose | November 4, 2022 at 6:52 pm

“…was wanted…”

Doesn’t say if “wanted” after conviction, or before. Either way…

John x 100
“I have felt for some time that a running total of criminal activity based on severity of crime should be kept, and that when a person hits a certain level, they should be permanently be removed from society.”

That’s a(nother) problem we can’t deal with because the grifters would rather have the issue than a solution.

The problem is best put by what I recall as the title of an Anarchist essay: “The Problem of Children and Mad Men.” Net: what do you do with people who can’t be rationally responsible for themselves? That drags with it the question of what counts as someone being rationally responsible.

Concretely, we have an “unfit for managing themselves in our midst” problem with at least mentally-ill, drug addicted, and Cluster B (current DSM) individuals. Segregating “criminals” is in part a solution, applied in principle based on confirmed unacceptable behaviors. That’s not a terrible approach to prevention as criminal behavior clusters. That’s a kinda-terrible approach, as *some* crimes are one-offs. Some stuff the best you can do — as in the least bad you can do — is patterns over time.

    “I have felt for some time that a running total of criminal activity based on severity of crime should be kept, and that when a person hits a certain level, they should be permanently be removed from society.”

    You mean, like three strikes laws? Democrats repeal those for breakfast.

      Peabody in reply to henrybowman. | November 5, 2022 at 5:39 pm

      Three strikes and you’re……….hold on there, let’s make it four. Or more.

        BierceAmbrose in reply to Peabody. | November 5, 2022 at 6:36 pm

        I saw a three strike law in action; described in a comment under another article here not long ago.

        It’s crushing to see. Even the video of sentencing that school shooter last week was rough just watching. Can you bring the dead back? No. Give the families, friends and community closure? Maybe a little. Not really. Will it stop more of this? Questionable. Varies by type. Will it help the shooter? Not at all.

        I think things in the neighborhood of “three strikes laws” are maybe part of a least bad response mix. How useful or just such laws are depends a lot of what else goes on around them.

        But, these are conversations we can’t have, entangled in hot takes, grifters, and impresarios working to get everyone all wee-wee’d up at some convenient bad guy, reinforcing the story that keeps themselves in place and in charge. Like, declaring that it’s “clear” that a particular cop “acted stupidly.”
