sexually assaulted his ex-girlfriend at her Queens home
earlier this month.

Bayside on July 23 in connection with the alleged incident,
which occurred within the precinct’s confines on
According to law enforcement sources, Kennedy was
with his 34-year-old former girlfriend at her residence
that day when he began touching her and making advances.
When she spurned them, police said, Kennedy allegedly
groped her genitalia with his hand and penetrated her.
He allegedly then refused to let her leave the apartment
when she sought to get away from him.
The woman later reported the incident to the 111th
Precinct, which conducted an investigation that led to
Kennedy’s arrest Friday. He was charged with sex abuse,
unlawful imprisonment, assault and harassment.

comment about the arrest, and is awaiting a response.
