She is the New York woman who faces attempted murder charges over claims she duped a Tinder date into coming over to a property where he was tortured while his family was ordered to pay a $100,000 ransom.
Valerie Rosario is 22 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Rosario, who lives on Manhattan’s Lower East Side with her mom and brother, allegedly set up the honeytrap scheme on Instagram and convinced the ‘complete stranger’ to come to an address in Marble Hill in the Bronx at 1 am on February 7. Valerie Rosario is alleged to have deliberately lured the unsuspecting 24-year-old man over to her apartment for the sadistic plot to be carried out with a group of others. That included putting the victim in the bath where he was sprayed with flammable liquids before being set alight, and tortured with knife blades.
She allegedly picked out the victim after noticing that he would often flash money on his own personal Instagram account and suggested they hook up. But it quickly turned into the date from hell as the man was tied up and gagged while his kidnappers forced him to call his brother to pony up $100,000 in ransom money to secure his release, Manhattan prosecutors allege.
Incredibly, police were able to track him down about 24 hours later, tied up in the back of a van and barely breathing,
The man arrived at the address on Marble Hill Avenue in the Bronx. The torture began soon afterward with one of a group of three men first pistol-whipping him, according to court documents seen by the Post. Rosario, together with the men are then alleged to have stripped the man, ‘placed him in a bathtub, poured flammable substances on him, and burned him with a flame’ all over his body, the charging document states.
His sibling was able to see him being cut by a knife, while demand for ransom money was made by other group members, Assistant District Attorney Andrew Kluger claimed in Manhattan Criminal Court. One of the alleged accomplices, Javier Vargas, was finally tracked down to a Queen’s address where he was also found to be sitting outside in a van.
The man was taken to hospital where he was treated for multiple burns and stab wounds on his face, body, back, and legs, according to the complaint.
