Devin Ratray is under investigation for alleged rape in New York City
Currently, Devin Ratray is facing a rape allegation over a case that was reported way back in 2017. Last year in December, he was arrested by the cops in connection with domestic violence charges.
Lisa Smith reached out to the prosecutors to ask a few questions about the report that was filed by her in 2017. As per CNN, in the report, Lisa accused Devin Ratray of raping her. She wanted to learn the reason from the authorities due to which her case had been pursued.
According to the reports of CNN, at that point in time, the case was not investigated by the cops because they thought that Smith did not want to push forward the case and press charges against Ratray.
Lisa told the media outlet that she was devastated when she got to know that the authorities did not investigate the case properly and she also spilled the details about the incident.
What did Lisa have to say about the whole incident?
As per Smith, she had known Devin before the night of the alleged assault on September 21, 2017. She recalled the day, and stated, that evening her brother, a friend, and Ratray all met for a drink before heading to Ratray’s Manhattan apartment.
Lisa believes that she was drugged at Devin’s apartment after being given a drink that was prepared by Ratray. She went on to say that Devin encouraged her to stay over and sleep on his couch.
Lisa told CNN, “I remember waking up and I couldn’t move. I couldn’t really open my eyes, but I could hear what was happening and I could feel what was happening. I knew that the other two people were gone and I was still on the couch.”
Soon afterward, the New York City Police Department issued a statement to People, that read, “The NYPD takes sexual assault and rape cases extremely seriously, and urges anyone who has been a victim to file a police report so we can perform a comprehensive investigation, and offer support and services to survivors.”
Devin Ratray has denied the rape allegations
As of now, Devin has not been charged in link to these allegations. As per CNN, he has denied the allegations that have been pressed against him in a phone call to the media outlet.
In 2021, Devin was arrested by the cops after allegedly strangling his then-girlfriend. He was charged with two counts then, one of domestic assault and battery by strangulation and another of domestic assault and battery. In that case, he pleaded not guilty and is expected to appear in court in October.
