NYC teen arrested for on-campus rape at Hudson Valley College



A Brooklyn teen is accused of sexually assaulting a victim on campus at a Hudson Valley college — and detectives suspect he could be linked to other attacks.

Newburgh Police arrested Mount St. Mary’s College student Anthony Pennachio on first-degree rape charges, ABC7 reported Friday.

Further details about the alleged attack, including when it occurred, have not been disclosed. It is also unclear if Pennachio was released on bail.

However, detectives said they now believe that Pannachio may have sexually assaulted other victims on campus, and are asking anyone with information to contact Newburgh Police, according to the report.

Mount St. Mary’s College officials are reportedly cooperating in the investigation.

“Our main concern, as always, is the safety and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff,” officials said in a statement to ABC.

Violence and sexual assault are completely at odds with the values of Mount Saint Mary College, and will not be tolerated on this campus.”

Newburgh Police did not immediately respond when contacted by The Post.
