Montauk Man Charged With Raping NYC Woman

Michael Cole seemed like a gentleman Friday evening when he introduced himself to the 34-year-old woman inside a restaurant in Montauk, police said.

 

A commercial fisherman and occasional construction worker, Cole, 35, sometimes showed up at Nick's restaurant, with his pet parrot on his shoulder. When he approached the woman there Friday, Cole was "amicable," and "carried conversation easily," police said.

 

But, not long after he persuaded her to return to his Montauk motel room, everything changed.

 

Behind the shuttered door of unit one, Cole severely beat the woman with his fists, raped and sodomized her, and prevented her from leaving for three hours, East Hampton Det. Sgt. Christopher Anderson said.

 

"It was totally unexpected," Anderson said. "He gave her no indication of what he was going to do." After the woman escaped Saturday morning and contacted police, Cole was arrested on Sunday. He was arraigned later that day in East Hampton Town Justice Court on charges of rape, sodomy, assault, aggravated sexual abuse and unlawful imprisonment, officials said.

 

The woman, who lives in New York City, arrived at Nick's with two friends. The three had come to Montauk for the weekend and were sharing a motel room, Anderson said.

 

Over the next few hours, as the woman spoke with Cole, her friends left, heading out to bars nearby, Anderson said. The owner of Nick's, Claire Dowling, said Cole usually came by once or twice a week, had a few drinks, then left. "We were all very surprised to hear about this," she said.

 

Sometime after midnight Cole and the woman returned to his one-bedroom unit at the Wave Crest Motel II on Adams Drive, Anderson said.

 

The motel attracts a working-class clientele, Anderson said, and houses a number of year-round tenants. Cole had been living there since March. No one at the motel could be reached for comment.

 

The two had not been romantic, the victim later told police. But as she was preparing to leave, she was attacked, Anderson said. The beating and abuse lasted for three hours, Anderson said.

 

The woman walked to the hotel where she had been staying, then was taken to Southampton Hospital. There, she was treated for bruises, contusions and abrasions to her face, head, back, arms and legs, officials said.

 

He was arrested without incident, Anderson and is being held at Suffolk County jail in Riverhead in lieu of $82,500 bail.

Cole's excuse for the attack was: "The parrot made me do it! He just kept wispering in my ear. He's really the anti-christ in green feathers."

 

Hummmm... remember John Silver with his parrot or Robert Blake with his cockatoo. cwm13.gif

Just to clarify - according to the article, the person being charged with this hienous, cowardly crime is not the owner of any motel. The initial post left that question unanswered - the guy was a commercial fisherman/part time construction worker - the motel was only involved as that's where the guy allegedly committed the crime.

I'm wondering if local tourism related businesses are going push harder for eviction of migrant workers or other transients from some of these motels.

 

Some motels are renting to migrants or transients on a longer term basis.

 

This has been a sore spot over the last few years among business owners in town.
