A man was arrested for allegedly raping a woman inside a Kips Bay apartment last week. Osman Muratovic, 33, was arrested inside 227 East 28th Street after police said that he raped a woman who was his employee.
According to police, Muratovic made sexual advances towards the victim while she was cleaning a client’s apartment on Tuesday, November 6 at 1:49 p.m.
The victim said that she tried to ignore his advances but Muratovic then allegedly threw her down to the couch, then to the bed in the apartment. Police said that Muratovic then raped her.
Muratovic was released last Thursday because his bail was paid and he is due back in court on Monday, December 10.
Muratovic’s attorney, Edward Kratt, claims that his client is innocent.
“We vigorously deny the charges,” Kratt said.
Kratt has previously represented a number of high-profile clients, including a man arrested on drug charges related to the investigation into Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death and a former Mount Sinai emergency room doctor charged with drugging and sexually abusing patients.
