Illegal Immigrant Suspected of Raping 13-Year-Old Gets Hit with 'Street Justice': 'We Acted Accordingly'


A group of New York citizens who tracked down and beat up an illegal alien suspected of raping a child in Queens last week are being praised by police.

Christian Geovanny Inga-Landi, an Ecuadorian national, allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl at knifepoint in a park in the borough on Thursday.

According to WNYW-TV, the girl was able to remember distinctive features about the suspect before she escaped.

She also recalled a tattoo her attacker had and helped police build a sketch.

Images of that sketch circulated around the city, and police eventually found a photo of Inga-Landi.

A group of what WNYW called “good samaritans” later identified Inga-Landi as a man who had recently begun to frequent a bodega in their neighborhood.

On Monday evening, they waited for him to show up at the bodega. When he did so, they roughed him up before detaining him while they waited for police to arrive.

One woman who was part of the melee told WNYW with a smile, “We just happened to see the suspect and we acted accordingly.”

Another man told the news station, “Boom, he comes, we caught him. Spot him, got him.”

One other person who detained the suspect said, “He was like, ‘Let me explain, let me explain’ – there was nothing to explain,” while another told WNYW, “I needed to do something because it’s just not right.”

Officers with the New York Police Department praised the group’s actions.

John Chell, the NYPD’s chief of patrol, told Fox News on Wednesday morning that the immigrant and alleged child sexual predator was given “street justice” before he was arrested to face charges.

“How courageous they were to help us. … The whole city said, ‘No.’ The community stepped in. They tried a little street justice, and we made the apprehension,” Chell said.

He also praised those who confronted the man for doing a public service by remaining vigilant.

Should these residents receive an award from the city?

Inga-Landi was visibly bloodied in a video taken of his apprehension and was briefly hospitalized before police took him to jail.

The illegal immigrant faces charges of rape, sex abuse, kidnapping, endangering the welfare of a child, robbery, unlawful imprisonment, menacing and a weapons charge.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
