Snapchat: Queens man arrested for allegedly raping 13-year-old girl on Long Island

June 2022

I urge you to check your kid’s devices. You must know who they are chatting to online. It’s your responsibility.

A Queens man was arrested on charges he raped a 13-year-old girl on Long Island, police said.

Andrew Ramsaroop, 30, of South Ozone Park, allegedly met the girl via Snapchat, then rendezvoused with her at a playground in Hauppauge where he raped her, cops said.

Andrew Ramsaroop was arrested for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl on Long Island.

Ramsaroop allegedly set the wheels in motion for the heinous act when he met up with the girl at the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove on May 13, officials said.

At that time, he tried to coax the girl and her friend into his vehicle, but was rebuffed, investigators said.

The rape occurred later the same day, police said.

Detectives arrested Ramsaroop on Friday night, authorities said, noting the girl informed a school official about the rape and the school notified police.

Authorities have charged Ramsaroop with second-degree rape, second-degree criminal sexual act and endangering the welfare of a child. A judge ordered the suspect to be held on $300,000 cash bail, $600,000 bond or $2 million partially secured bond, according to Tierney’s office. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 27.

“The investigation is continuing,” a Fourth Squad detective told the Post early Saturday afternoon.

Snapchat is currently developing in-app tools for parents to give them more insight into their children’s activity on the platform. The app advises users against adding “friends” they do not know in real life. Users can also customize their privacy settings so that they can choose who is able to send them photo or text messages. Users can also report inappropriate messages directly to the social media company.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Fourth Squad at 631-854-8452 or anonymously to Suffolk County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
