‘He beat her until her dentures fell out’: Man held without bail for kidnapping, sexual assault of senior Asian woman

The man accused of kidnapping, strangling and raping a 64-year-old Asian woman in Quincy, Massachusetts earlier this month has been held without bail.
At a hearing Wednesday, a judge ruled that 26-year-old Christian M. Lynch was too dangerous to be released after the Nov. 12 incident that has left the local community fearing for their safety ever since.
The victim's ordeal began just after 7 a.m. at the Wollaston MBTA station when she was abducted and driven to an apartment on East Elm Avenue. There she was tied up, strangled and sexually abused for the next 11 hours, according to prosecutors.

"He hit her to the point where her prosthesis fell out. He then tied her wrists and feet and taped her mouth shut," Beth McLaughlin of the Norfolk County Attorney's Office told the judge.

At around 6pm the victim was dropped off in a car park at Westgate Mall in Brockton. A passer-by who heard her scream then called 911.
After the attack, Lynch went shopping to buy cleaning supplies and a new mattress, prosecutors said. He was arrested the next day at a supermarket near his home.

Lynch, who claimed the encounter was consensual, told police he was "tired of stealing dating apps." He also said, "This is me going out into the world to get a date."
Surveillance video reportedly shows the moment Lynch forced the victim into his car. Before the kidnapping, he is also said to have targeted another Asian woman who managed to escape and has not contacted the authorities to date.
Lynch had previously been charged with rape, kidnapping, strangulation and assault by a person aged 60 or older. He has also been charged with attempted kidnapping and assault with intent to rape in connection with the previous attack and exposed himself to a woman near Nickerson Rock's hiking trails last month.
