NEW YORK CITY — A really disturbing story of sexual violence against men from the New York Area that has netted the arrest of four women for the incident, and a man for witnessing the women committing sexual violence against men and doing nothing about it.
The victims were all rich men, and their identities will be withheld.
An eight month investigation found that Samantha Barbash, 40, Roselyn Keo, 29, Marsi Rosen, 28, and Karina Pascucci, 26, had been drugging men at two city strip clubs — Scores in Manhattan and Roadhouse NYC in Queens.
The quartet of sex workers scoped the area to find victims. One or more of the women would text the victims to meet with them.
The women would then spike the victims’ drinks with Molly, a date rape drug that Rick Ross rapped about in his pro-rape anthem, U.O.E.N.O.
The robbers would then take their victims to an undisclosed location, arrange for a private room and give the victims’ credit/debit cards a ride.
The victims wouldn’t remember anything at all — they’d wake up in cars, hotel rooms or even their own beds with no recollection of what had happened, and were shocked when they found out about the card charges. When they challenged the charges, the male victims were sent threatening text messages, and incriminating pictures that had been taken when they were drugged up, sexually assaulted and robbed.
One doctor was hit with a $136,000.00 charge on his credit card after four trips to Scores in November 2013.
Scores hit the victim with a lawsuit, claiming that the 41-year-old victim was “partying with five girls at once”.
The doctor’s lawyer, Michael Weinstein, said, “We were always confident that law enforcement’s efforts would expose that my client was preyed upon by this ring and not responsible for charges to his credit card.”
And sure enough, they were proven correct.
Special Narcotics prosecutor Bridget Brennan said of the female predators, “The defendants were banking on the victims being too afraid to contact the police, but as the indictment and arrests show, they made a serious miscalculation.”
Ms. Barbash, who went by the nickname “Samantha Foxx”, was the ringleader of the all-female sexual predator ring.
The indictment, which was unsealed Tuesday, says the all-female crew ran its sexual assault and robbery combo scheme between September and December of 2013, but investigators believe “one or more” members of the predatory group may have engaged in similar schemes as far back as January 2011.
One of the victims did an exclusive interview with the New York Daily News about the incident.
The married father said he believes he was drugged and robbed by the women when he went to the Penthouse Executive Club in Hell’s Kitchen last year — a night that ended with his credit card loaded with over $40000.00 worth of charges.
“I’ve been to strip clubs all around the world. I party a lot. I’m not a stupid guy — there’s no way in God’s green earth I would spend $40000.00 in one day,” he said, surmising that he must have been “slipped” something because he remembers feeling really “weird.”
“It was like I was punch drunk. I felt like I was floating,” he said. “It wasn’t a drunk feeling – just like a dream. It’s just a blur.”
That victim decided to speak with the Daily News on Wednesday, a day after the all-female sexual assault/robbery ring was busted up by the New York Police Department.
Some of female defendants even tried drugging, sexually assaulting and robbing a DEA agent posing as a rich man.
The victim said that he even fell prey to the same sexual assault/robbery scheme in March 2013, more than six months before the timeline of the incident above.
He said that he took three associates to Penthouse that month.
According to media reports, Penthouse is owned by the very same people who own Scores.
He said he and his pals had a couple of drinks, but he decided to stay for one more when they were packing up.
He said he ended up in a private room with two women — and was apparently there for hours.
The victim, who’s in his 40s, said he remembers feeling “not in control,” and signing several pieces of paper. He also remembered being half naked himself at one point, and said that when he left, he, the women and a manager appeared to be the only people left in what had been a busy club.
His stepmother then found out that he was sexually assaulted and robbed by the women. He was out nearly $7,000.00 that night.
Both the stepmother, his bookkeeper, and his wife were understanding — but he said the club wasn’t. He said when he challenged the charges through a middleman, he was told the club would go to the newspapers if he didn’t pay up.
He was also contacted by one of the female predators, who got his mobile number.
“She said, ‘Baby, you just had a good time that night. You don’t remember.’ That’s when I realized I’d been scammed,” he said.
She told him if he didn’t pay, she’d lose her share of the cash. “Come on, you can afford this,” she told him.
“I haven’t gone to a strip club since,” he said, adding he didn’t recognize any of the women who were arrested this week. A rep for Penthouse did not return a call for comment.
The male manager of Roadhouse was also arrested. Agents said that the manager knew that the women were drugging, sexually assaulting and robbing men and he did nothing to stop it, propelling law enforcers to hit him with conspiracy charges.
The spokeswoman for the DEA, Erin Mulvey, said the investigation is continuing, and investigators believe there are other victims (all male) – and possibly more female suspects – of the all-female predator ring.
THIS is why I want people to talk to their daughters and mothers. It is time to remind women that men don’t owe them a nickel of money for their time spent with the women – not even on a first date.
Disgusting story of female sexual entitlement and female monetary entitlement run amok, indeed. These women and other women like them who feel the need to rob men because the men refuse to consent to putting out their cash need to go to jail for a long time.
Taking a man’s money without his consent is robbery. Way past time for women to learn this.
