A Pennsylvania woman was raped for hours by her attacker but convinced the man to let her go as he debating whether or not to kill her, police said.
Around 4:15 a.m. on Sept. 22, police said they were notified of a sexual assault at Fayfield Park in East York, Pennsylvania.
According to authorities, Jean Carlo Nogueras-Gonzalez, 29, and the woman, who knew each other, were at a local bar the night before when they left around 11:30 p.m.
They went to Fayfield Park, and while there, police said the woman told Nogueras-Gonzalez “no” and refused any of his advances, the York Dispatch reported.
Court records show the woman said “that he began by trying to kiss her and she kept moving away from his advances. She also advised that she tried to fight him off,” according to the York Dispatch.
Her efforts did not pay off, as Nogueras-Gonzalez sexually assaulted her in an attack that lasted for a few hours, as she was punched, slammed against a wall and choked multiple times to unconsciousness, police said.
When the man saw her blood, she claims he “snapped out of it” and then “realized he was in trouble and even debated killing her,” according to the York Dispatch.
From there, Nogueras-Gonzalez took the woman to a nearby convenience store to help her clean up after she asked to go the hospital, officials said.
There was video footage that showed the victim in “obvious pain and distress,” as the man was “escorting and staying close by her side the entire time,” the York Dispatch reported.
The pair went back to the park and this is when Nogueras-Gonzalez again debated on whether or not he should kill her or let her go, police said.
After a lot of convincing, the man agreed to take her home, authorities said. The victim was later treated at WellSpan York Hospital for her injuries, cops said.
Officials said police found smeared blood around the park pavilion and a diamond earring that belonged to the victim.
Nogueras-Gonzalez was arrested and charged with rape, sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, strangulation, making terroristic threats and simple assault, police said. He is being held in York County Prison without bail.
