Kings Park Man Arrested For Rape

Police say Luis Sanchez attacked the woman while she was jogging.

Suffolk County Police arrested a Kings Park man on Tuesday for sexually assaulting a woman in Kings Park.

Police charged 23-year-old Luis Sanchez with rape in the first degree and two counts of a criminal sexual act.

Sanchez was arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip and is currently being held in the Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverhead.

According to police, the woman was jogging on Marvin Drive on Tuesday around 6 a.m. when a man approached her, forced her into a nearby wooded area and sexually assaulted her. The assault is the second reported sexual attack in less than six months in Kings Park.

In early April, New York State Park Police reported that a 20-year-old woman was raped at Nissequogue River State Park. According to police the woman was walking on a bicycle path near Old Dock Road in the park on April 4 when she was attacked.

The police are asking anyone with information on this attack to call 854-8452.

On a related issue, have you ever tried to bring your kids to play soccer or basketball at the park behind Parkview elementary school? Guess what, you can't. Some days there are 20 to 30 individuals of mexican/equidorian decent and not one of them speaks english using our park which we pay hard earned tax money for. Your vote counts people remember that next election our town is being invaded and nothing is being done about it

i never knew there were so many uneducated and ignorant people living in kings park. i understand your anger and frustration and my heart goes out to the woman more than you know. the racist and insulting comments descirbing 'immigrants' and apparently anyone who does NOT have white skin, blond hair and blue eyes is disturbing. THIS ANIMAL is a piece of garbage that commited a Horrific crime and YES i am ONE HUNDRED percent positve he IS an illegal alien but his nationality has NOTHING to do with this. i too am not happy that he was working in a factory that a local kings parker could have had, and i too am not happy he was not paying taxes like the rest of us and i too am not happy that he was lurking the streets of our happy neighborhood but please PLEASE do not make this a hate against people of a different race. if you do not change your attitude and stop spreading the hate i can promise the youth of our future will not be any better than this piece of garbage that commited this heinous crime.

You all don't know a thing . You don't know what it's like to be accused for something you didn't do . The women that accused him , lied ! She didn't tell what really happened she wasn't jogging she said that to put him in a wrong place , she didn't think about what her lying would lead to . It's bad enough he was blamed for stuff he didn't do . But there's people leaving racist comments , seriously I thought we were done with racism decades ago ... but apparently not people still can't move on . Immigrants don't do anything but come to look for a better future . So you all need to stop judging others nobody in this world can judge us but GOD !
