Suspect Caught in Upper East Side Sexual Assault on 85-Year-Old Woman


I didn’t do it! I didn’t do it!” 32-year-old Jeffrey Ritter yelled as cops took him to a police car, in front of a phalanx of reporters. “Yeah, fuck you with all your cameras.” The NYPD says that Ritter is the man caught on a surveillance camera Monday dragging an 85-year-old woman into a stairwell, where she says he sexually assaulted her and robbed her. Ritter was partially recognizable in the film by his tattoos, including one of the Yankees logo on his cheek. He’s been charged with sexual abuse, robbery, and a criminal sexual act.
