Burglar ‘forces woman to choose rape, death or sex with son at gunpoint’

Joshua Henderson is alleged to have tied up the woman and her adult son by convincing them he had a gun before raiding the property. A burglar raped a woman after giving her the option of being sexually assaulted, murdered or having sex with her son, police said on Friday.

Joshua Henderson, 33, is accused of posing as a construction worker and raping a woman as her adult son was bound and locked in a nearby room.

Detectives said he wore a high-viz vest, work boots and a hard hat to break into the victim’s apartment in New York City – pretending he was going to the roof for repairs.

He allegedly told the woman that there was work being done on the roof and told her to close the curtains, at about 6pm on September 16.

But police said he then climbed into the woman’s bedroom window in the Queen’s borough, and when she walked into the room, told her to drop her cell phone.

He is said to have tied up the woman and her adult son by convincing them he had a gun before raiding the property for jewellery and cash.

But instead of just making off with the loot, police claim Henderson presented the woman with a sickening ultimatum.

Henderson allegedly told the terrified woman he could rape her, smother her with a pillow or she could have sex with her 25-year-old son.

She agreed to let him rape her and Henderson is alleged to have tied her son in the bathroom before returning to attack the woman.

He then sprayed her with soapy water in an attempt to destroy DNA evidence, detectives claim.

CCTV footage allegedly showed Henderson wearing construction attire leaving the building. And the victim is also said to have picked him out of a police line-up.

Henderson, who has multiple burglary convictions, is now being investigated for a number of unsolved rape and cases, sources claimed.

He was arrested and is being held without bail charged with rape, robbery and other charges. But dad-of-three Henderson’s wife Joanna insisted DNA evidence would prove her husband’s innocence.

She said “He’s a loving, caring man. He’d give you his last. “The DNA is going to prove he didn’t do this. “I’m telling you the DNA is going to prove he didn’t do anything.”
