A Jackson Heights man was arrested on Saturday for alleged assaulting and sexually abusing a woman in Auburndale last month before he received “a happy ending,” according to court documents.
Jose Montes faces up to seven years in prison for grabbing a 56-year-old woman by the collar of her shirt and punching her in the face several times on Dec. 18, according to the criminal complaint. The woman fell to the ground as Montes allegedly pulled her pants down and sexually assaulted her with his hands.
Montes told detectives that he was drinking at a bar in Manhattan before continuing his binge at another bar in Queens, according to the criminal complaint.
The woman screamed as Montes allegedly called her a “bitch and a whore” in Spanish and told her to “shut the fuck up,” before fleeing the location in a cab to go to “a massage place and got a happy ending,” according to the criminal complaint.
Montes, 32, allegedly admitted to punching someone, but doesn’t remember the sexual assault.
The woman went to a local hospital for treatment for bruising, as well as a swollen lip and eye.
Police released video and still images from a nearby surveillance camera that showed Montes walking near the Sanford Avenue attack.
The alleged creep was alerted by his co-workers that he was seen on wanted flyers. “I was afraid,” Montes allegedly told detectives.
Montes is charged with felony sexual abuse, forcible touching and third-degree assault. Queens Criminal Court Judge Toko Serita set $15,000 cash bail for Montes for the attack.
He is scheduled to return to court on Jan. 25.
