Man charged with rape on Philadelphia train detained for trial

Man charged with rape on Philadelphia train detained for trial.

PHILADELPHIA – A man accused of raping a woman on a commuter train outside Philadelphia while other passengers were present was ordered to be detained for trial by an investigating judge.

Fiston Ngoy, 35, is charged with rape and related crimes in the Oct. 13 attack on a Pennsylvania Transportation Authority train that attracted international attention after police initially said bystanders should have intervened.

Later, authorities said they believe the passengers did not realize a violation was taking place.

The court appearance Monday came on the same day that Philadelphia City Council committees held a joint hearing on SEPTA safety.
