An Ecuadorian illegal alien who allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl in  at Kissena Park in Queens made his first appearance in a New York court Wednesday.

Christian Geovanny Inga-Landi, 25, did not say anything during the court hearing. He was remanded and will be held in custody, according to local reports

Inga-Landi was arrested on Tuesday after New York City locals helped track him down following the New York Police Department releasing images and a video of him. 

A group tracked him down at a deli in Corona, where they proceeded to attack and detain him until police arrived, according to local media.

Police officials claimed Inga-Landi came into the country illegally and was apprehended by Customs and Border Patrol agents in Eagle Pass, Texas, in 2021.

Inga-Landi is facing charges including rape, sex abuse, robbery, menacing, unlawful imprisonment, kidnapping, endangering the welfare of a child and possession of a weapon, and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
