Wayne Ramkisson - Repeat Sex Offender - Rapist

Village Police in Monticello have charged a 34-year-old local man with first-degree rape after he sexually attacked a 16-year-old girl after giving her alcohol.

Wayne Ramkisson of Monticello was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child and unlawfully dealing with a child in the first degree. Ramkisson is already a level three sex offender in New York for a prior conviction of sexual abuse in the first degree that occurred in 1996.

The victim had met Ramkisson earlier Sunday afternoon and took a walk with him to Dehoyas Park on Hay Street where he began to make unwanted sexual advances toward her, it is alleged.

When she resisted and told Ramkisson to stop, she was pushed to the ground and forcibly attacked.

Concerned family members alerted police that she had not returned home at a designated time. A police officer searching for the girl found Ramkisson and her walking on West Broadway after the assault.

Ramkisson had also threatened the girl not to say anything to the police but when an officer interviewed her, she reported the incident.

Ramkisson was remanded to the Sullivan County Jail without bail.
