EXCLUSIVE - The man accused of raping a woman on a Philadelphia Area train had a criminal record. He also had overstayed his student visa, but was not deported by the immigration system.

The visa of the 35-year old Congolese national was terminated in 2015 after he failed to continue his studies.
Court records indicate that Ngoy had "multiple arrests" and "two misdemeanor convictions for controlled substances and sexual abuse." Ngoy pled guilty to the sexual abuse misdemeanor in Washington D.C. in 2017. He was sentenced to 120 days imprisonment and nine months probation.
In January 2018, he was placed in immigration detention. He was placed in immigration detention in Jan. 2018.
Ngoy was therefore released and had to report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement under an OSUP. OSUPs are conditions that are placed on people who have been temporarily released from detention until they can be deported. This usually involves regular check-ins.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, stays are usually granted in order for officials to gather the required travel documents to deport an immigrant.
Philadelphia police said Monday that the attack against the train took place in Philadelphia. Bystanders did nothing, and instead used their phones to record the incident. Transit Police officers arrived three minutes later and stopped the violence and arrested the man.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel III stated that "We want everybody to be angry, disillusioned, and join us in being determined in keeping our system secure."
