Busted For Sexual Abuse

By Howard Schwach

A Rockaway Park man who found a woman on the Internet, took her for a romantic day at the beach and then sodomized and sexually abused her when she tried to leave his Shore Front Parkway apartment, police sources say.

According to police and court sources, Yan Normatov, 40, met his unidentified female friend on the Internet and spent a few hours with her on the beach before taking her to his apartment at 8000 Shore Front Parkway at about 2 a.m. on August 7.

Normatov had been drinking during the day, police say, and his new female friend sent a text message to another friend, asking the friend to pick her up because Normatov was too drunk to drive her home.

He allegedly became enraged over the text message.

“Who do you think you are,” he allegedly asked her. “You are not just going to leave here.”

Court records supplied by Queens District Attorney say that he threw her on the bed and sodomized her.

The criminal complaint says that she begged him to stop.

She ran to the door, attempting to leave the apartment, when he grabbed her by the hair and dragged her back to the bedroom, court papers say.

He then allegedly threatened her with a semiautomatic pistol and forced her to perform oral sex on him.

At one point, Normatov allegedly took a candle off a table and threatened to pour the hot wax in the victim’s eye if she did not perform oral sex.

Later in the day, Normatov left the apartment for a short time and the victim broke free and called police.

Cops nabbed Normatov at his apartment and found the handgun that he had used to threaten his victim.

Normatov told police that he had “stolen the gun from a police officer.”

Neighbors told The Wave that Normatov is a hairdresser, and often had women in his apartment.

They added that they often heard loud music coming from his ninth floor apartment.

He was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on August 8 on charges of performing a criminal sex act, assault and four counts of sexual abuse.

He was held on $50,000 bond and $75,000 cash bail for his next court date, which was set for August 23.
