Henry Romero a Queens male model faces felony rape charges after allegedly raping the wrong female room-mate after accepting a sleep-over invitation.
At least he did get to rape somebody. Henry Romero Rodriguez a 34 year old Queens based, NY male model has hit into a public relations snafus after being accused of raping a woman he met out on the town.
It wasn’t until after the incident, that the male model apologized to say he’d mistaken his victim for her room-mate, whom he intended to rape instead.
According to the 31 year old room-mate, the woman woke up from a deep sleep circa 6am to find Romero sexually assaulting her, forcing himself on her at the two women’s Hells Kitchen apartment.
According to the nypost, when Romero, 34 was reproached, ‘Get off me! Get off me!’ the male model is alleged to have apologized and said, ‘I thought you were (the woman’s room-mate)’.
The fun times began the night before when the two women had been out the night of March 21 with our collective hero and a bunch of other friends.
One of the women, who had been Romero’s date, agreed to let him sleep on her living room floor to avoid the long ride back to Queens from Manhattan.
But then she said she got a bad feeling from him when he began ‘acting creepy.’
‘He said, ”I want you to dance for me – that’s why I brought you here,” the woman told The Post. ‘The way he said it was just weird.’
She decided to head home leaving Romero at the bar, but that didn’t stop him from still taking her up on her offer to sleep over.
The woman said she went to get something to eat, then made her way to her apartment in Hell’s Kitchen.
When she arrived, she found Romero asleep in the living room and her roommate, who was visiting from another country, not in her own bed, but in the woman’s bed instead.
Sleepy lullabies but …..
The woman said she took her roommate’s bed but was woken up a few hours later by the screams of her housemate.
‘He went into my room, thinking it was me!’ the first woman said.
No more sleepy lullabies ….
She said that after she heard him apologize to her roommate, the housemate yelled that there’s no way Romero could have confused the two woman, since one has black hair, and one has blond hair.
‘But at least I thought one of you would find me irresistible. I am a male model after all…’
Romero is free on a $3,000 bond. He has pleaded not guilty.
The suspect was signed with Abrams Artists Agency. It’s unclear if he still is.
Romero remains free on $3,000 bail on felony rape charges; he’s due back in court on August 1. Let’s hope he doesn’t walk into the wrong court-room….
