Police arrested and charged a Bronx man for dragging a woman into a hidden area near Bronx Park before raping her on Christmas Day.
Investigators tracked down Bronx man Jose R. Roys within hours after police found the female victim on Boston Road.
Cops said Roys allegedly struck up a conversation with the woman at about 6:20 a.m. on Dec. 25. He then is said to have punched the woman and, while she struggled to recover, dragged her into a secluded area, where he raped her.
Roys turned himself in Friday after police circulated surveillance video of him, the NYPD said.
Roys faces charges of rape, robbery, committing a criminal sex act and assault.
