A 16-year-old pizza delivery boy was busted today after he allegedly broke into a woman’s apartment and savagely raped her, police said.
Cesar Lucas of the Bronx delivered a pie from New York Sal’s Pizza on 10th Avenue to an apartment in a large building near the corner of Amsterdam Avenue around 12:30 a.m.
After making the delivery, Lucas broke into the home of the 35-year-old victim, who lives on the same floor, police sources said.
Lucas allegedly put his hands over his victim’s mouth so she couldn’t scream.
After Lucas raped her, the woman fought with her attacker and he fled, cops said.
The woman had been sleeping, and the door to her apartment was slightly ajar, police sources said.
Cops arrested Lucas after finding him at Sal’s, nearby on 10th Avenue.
Lucas had worked at the shop part-time on weekend nights for about a year, said a coworker, adding, “He’s a good kid.”
Police charged Lucas with rape and burglary, and he was waiting to be arraigned on Saturday afternoon.
The woman was treated at Roosevelt Hospital.
This isn’t Lucas’ first time breaking into an apartment while delivering pizza.
Last month, cops found him with a 39-year-old woman’s credit cards and driver’s license after they cuffed him for jumping a turnstile.
He was charged with burglary, criminal possession of stolen credit cards and theft of service.
