Woman Raped on SEPTA Market-Frankford El; FDA Panel Approves J+J Booster; Car Hits HS Football Fans

Upper Darby and SEPTA police are investigating after a woman was raped on a SEPTA Market-Frankford El train on Wednesday night, 10/13. It happened around 11 p.m. on a westbound train as it approached the 69th Street Terminal. 35-year-old Fiston M. Ngoy has was arrested and charged with rape, indecent assault, sexual assault and other related charges. Authorities say that video shows Ngoy sit next to the victim and attempt to touch her. He then ripped off her clothes and sexually assaulted her. Eventually, a SEPTA employee saw the attack and called police who met the train at 69th Street. They found Ngoy partially clothed next to the victim. Authorities are disturbed that no one on the train did anything to stop the assault.

"Were they watching? I don’t know. Again, we're still going through the video but there was a lot of people, in my opinion, that should've intervened. Somebody should've done something. It speaks to where we are in society. Who would allow something like that to take place? So it's troubling but again, we're working on that and we're trying to identify anyone that we saw coming on and off the El at that time,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Tim Bernhardt said.

SEPTA's statement:
"The rape that occurred on SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line Wednesday night (Oct. 13) was a horrendous criminal act. The assault was observed by a SEPTA employee, who called 911, enabling SEPTA officers to respond immediately and apprehend the suspect in the act.

There were other people on the train who witnessed this horrific act, and it may have been stopped sooner if a rider called 911. SEPTA urges anyone who observes a crime being committed or any dangerous situation occurring to report it. Anyone witnessing an emergency should immediately call 911. For non-emergencies, we encourage the public to use the SEPTA Transit Watch app. If people see something they think SEPTA Police should know, this allows them to say something - quickly and discreetly.

Upper Darby Township Police are leading the investigation into the rape with assistance from SEPTA Transit Police. Anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Upper Darby Township Police," SEPTA said.

An FDA panel has endorsed a booster shot for the J&J COVID-19 vaccine. The advisory panel voted unanimously on Friday, 10/15, for a booster at least two months after the initial shot. The panel voted on Thursday, 10/14, for the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine booster to people 65 and older, those 18 to 64 with risk factors for severe Covid-19, and those whose jobs put them at high risk for serious complications of Covid-19, such as health care workers. The booster would be taken 6 months from the last shot and would only be a half dose. The FDA panel did not make a recommendation for mix-and-match vaccines. The FDA will take these endorsements into account when deciding to issue Emergency Use Authorizations for the boosters.

Multiple pedestrians were hit by a vehicle in the parking lot of a football stadium on Friday night, 10/15, prior to a high school homecoming game in New Castle County, Delaware. It happened around 6 p.m. outside Abessinio Stadium on Saint Rocco Way in Wilmington. Salesianum High School's homecoming game vs Middletown High School was postponed. At least three people were taken to the hospital. No word on their conditions. No students were injured. The cause of the accident is being investigated.

Salesianum issued this statement:
"Tonight's game has been postponed due to a vehicle accident with injuries in the parking lot of Abessinio Stadium prior to kickoff. No Middletown or Salesianum students were injured.

Natural Resources Police are conducting an investigation. Information regarding the game will be shared when it is available.

In the meantime, please join the Salesianum community in praying for those affected as we ask God to shed his healing grace on the injured."
