NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A New Jersey man has been accused of bringing an unconscious woman to his home from New York City and sexually assaulting her, authorities said.

Cyrus Fakroddin, 51, encountered the 19-year-old woman in Manhattan in the early hours of November 17, 2012, according to the Union County, N.J., Prosecutor's Office. The woman had been out clubbing with friends and was "physically and mentally incapacitated," according to First Assistant Prosecutor Albert Cernadas Jr.

Fakroddin then drove her in his van to his home to Summit, N.J., where he sexually assaulted her, authorities said.

A few hours later, she woke up and had no memory of meeting Fakroddin or going home with him, authorities said. She called a friend and went back to Manhattan, where she sought out medical attention.

Detectives with the Summit Police Department and Prosecutor's Office investigated, took statements, and gathered physical evidence, authorities said. Then on January 9, 2013, police arrested Fakroddin at his home.

Authorities charged him with first-degree aggravated sexual assault against a person who was physically helpless.

Fakroddin was being held in the Union County Jail on $250,000 bail, authorities said.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.

    As he tried to assist in the delivery of a newborn, Manchester Officer Joseph Fastige noticed the umbilical cord was wrapped around the child’s neck. He was able to get his fingers around the cord and safely unwrapped it. That quick-thinking - and perhaps life-saving - move was one of several Manchester officers made when they delivered a newborn child last week.
