A police captain made some eyebrow-raising remarks about an increase in sexual assaults in a New York City neighborhood, according to an article published Friday.

His comments were so off-base, and they whipped up a storm of controversy so large, that the mayor’s office had to respond. So did the New York Police Department.

In comments reported by local news website DNAinfo New York, NYPD’s 94th precinct Capt. Peter Rose distinguished between “stranger rape” and “acquaintance rape,” lumping Tinder into the latter.

“They’re not total abomination rapes where strangers are being dragged off the streets … If there’s a true stranger rape, a random guy picks up a stranger off the street, those are the troubling ones. That person has, like, no moral standards,” he was reported as saying.

The comments came during a 94th Precinct Community Council meeting this week. He had distinguished between “stranger rape” and other types of sexual assault at an earlier time when talking to the news outlet about 13 rape cases reported in the Greenpoint neighborhood in Brooklyn in the past year. Many of them were reportedly assaults perpetrated by people the women knew, or “acquaintance rapes.”
