Police arrested 16-year-old Cesar Lucas, a worker at New York Sal’s Pizzeria at 696 Tenth Avenue, for allegedly raping a UWS woman at the same address where he was delivering pizza. Police say Lucas dropped off a pizza to a West 61st Street building at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, then gained entry into the victim’s apartment through her front door, which was unlocked. The victim was sleeping next to her 7-year-old daughter, who did not wake up during the attack, and said Lucas fled with her iPhone and $20 after a struggle. Lucas, whom a co-worker described as a “good kid,” was arraigned for rape, burglary, sexual abuse, and endangering the welfare of a child over the weekend. [NYDN]
