The Manhattan woman viciously raped by a pizza-delivery boy as her young daughter lay in bed next to her is filing suit Thursday against her alleged attacker, along with his employer and the company that operates her doorman luxury condo building.
“I have a hard time understanding how a pizza delivery boy can be let upstairs after midnight and roam the halls for over 25 minutes without anyone at the building thinking that something was wrong,” the still shaken 35-year-old victim said yesterday.
“For a company like Halstead that operates buildings all over the city, this is completely inexcusable,” she said through her lawyer, Marc Albert.
The woman and her daughter’s Manhattan Supreme Court suit, which seeks an unspecified amount of money, also names the West 61st Street luxury condo where they live, doorman Luis Rodriguez, New York Sal’s Pizza and its owner’s son — 16-year-old suspect Cesar Lucas.
Lucas was let into the building by Rodriguez at about 12:30 a.m. Sept. 29 to deliver a pizza to another resident, cops said. Lucas then allegedly tried several doorknobs and found the woman’s door unlocked.
