FLASHBACK: NYC DA Bragg reduced charges and set free man later arrested for attempted rape of minor

The assaulter, Anthony Ibanez, 32, was previously arrested for robbery a few months before the horrifying attack but was set free without bail after the District Attorney's Office downgraded his charges.

The story of an attempted rape of a minor 6 months ago echoes the outrage that many residents of New York City and members of New York City Police Department are still voicing since Alvin Bragg began his tenure as District Attorney and instituted his Day One memo.

Last Summer, a 15-year-old girl was forced to the ground by a man and sexually assaulted in the Bronx. The man then threatened the girl, “I’m going to take you to a quiet place and f—k you,” as he continued the assault, according to the criminal complaint against him viewed by the New York Post.

The assault was only stopped when a Good Samaritan stepped in and physically forced the man off of the minor girl, roughing him up in the process. Shockingly, the assailant later attempted to file a complaint against the Good Samaritan, claiming he himself had been assaulted.

The assaulter, Anthony Ibanez, 32, had been previously arrested for robbery a few months before the horrifying attack but was set free without bail after the District Attorney's Office downgraded his charges.

Cops recognized him from the description given by the 15-year-old victim and quickly re-arrested him.

The facts of the case - the downgrade of charges, the bail-free release of the perp who then went on to break the law again in a horrific way and his attempt to then use the law against the citizen who stepped in to stop the crime - speak to a serious crime and safety problem that has been plaguing the city since Alvin Bragg took office as the DA in January of 2022 and unveiled his now infamous Day One memo.

The memo, outlining a far progressive leaning agenda, shocked many with its soft-on-crime approach and sparked waves of outrage from both residents and NYPD.  

Bragg put in place initiatives that have earned him a reputation as being an "unprosecutor".

Prosecutors were mandated to downgrade felony charges in cases including armed robberies and drug dealing, as well as to stop seeking prison sentences in many crimes amongst a litany of other plans that have sent the city into a judicial free-fall.

The case of Ibanez, the man who sexually assaulted a girl last summer, paints a picture of just where Bragg's office has led the Big Apple.

Still on its knees from the massive hits it took as a result of the pandemic, New York City continues to be pummelled by an overwhelming sense of lawlessness under Bragg's office that has only become more glaring as the days pass.
