Two Men Face Rape Charges in Yorktown, Third Man Charged with Sexual Misconduct

The information was provided by the Yorktown Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Three men are facing criminal charges in Yorktown after two 16-year-old girls reported being raped, Yorktown police said. 

A Yorktown man, 27, and a Cortlandt Manor man, 21, have been charged with rape, while another Yorktown man, 19, faces several misdemeanor charges related to the incident.

The two girls reported to police on Nov. 3 at around 2 p.m. that they were raped earlier that day by acquaintances at a residence on Gregory Street in Yorktown. The three men were identified as possible suspects and located at various locations in Yorktown, police said. 

  • Jesse Suggs, 27, of Yorktown, was charged with two felony counts of third-degree rape. 
  • Vincent Silva, 21, of Cortlandt Manor, was charged with a third-degree rape, a felony. 
  • Frank Cristiano III, 19, of Yorktown, was charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, endangering the welfare of a child and attempted sexual misconduct, misdemeanors. 

Yorktown police Lt. Kevin Soravilla said there was no force used, but the third-degree felony rape charges were filed because of the lack of consent due to the ages of the girls (under age 17). Cristiano III was charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony because he is under the age of 21. 

The three men were remanded to the Westchester County Jail after being unable to post bail. They were scheduled to re-appear in Yorktown Town Court on Nov. 8.
