Kemoy Royal, 32, faces a 23-count indictment accusing him of raping and sexually assaulting three women in his New York apartment.

Royal was arrested last month for assaulting a third woman in a week, authorities said. After a night of repeated rape and brutality against the woman in her Bronx apartment, he returned her phone and allowed her to order food, investigators say.

He bit her in the chest, strangled her and tried to force her into sexual acts before allowing her to leave, the prosecutor’s office said.

On June 18, Royal met his third victim – a woman he had been chatting with for a few months on a dating app, prosecutors said. After arriving at her apartment, the woman said he held her against her will and threatened to kill her.

Royal strangled and raped her throughout the night, including once at knifepoint, and forced her to perform other sexual acts, authorities said.

The woman said Royal took her phone to prevent her from calling for help, but returned it early the next morning so she could order food. She took advantage of it.

“Please call the police, they will call me when you get the cones delivered, please don’t make it obvious,” read the note the restaurant shared on Facebook. .
