A landlord who owns multiple properties across New York drugged and raped four women in his $8,500-per-month apartment at the Langham, prosecutors said in court.

Eliseo Adorno, who was living at pricey apartment at 135 Central Park West, was arraigned on criminal sex act, rape, sex abuse and unlawful surveillance charges in July, the New York Post reported. The 13-story building, which takes up an entire block between 73 and 74th streets, was once home to Mia Farrow, according to the tabloid.

Prosecutors say Adorno owns multiple properties in upstate New York and also has a home on City Island. They requested he continue to be held without bail, calling him a flight risk.

The 67-year-old native of Puerto Rico had 350 explicit photos and 45 videos on his phone that show women asleep or unconscious during sex acts, prosecutors said. He is accused of filming and photographing the women between October 2014 and March 2015.

“They have absolutely no recollection of any of the conduct depicted in the images or videos,” Manhattan prosecutor Melanie Sobera said, according to the newspaper.

“What he has done to these victims, in taking these pictures not just of himself engaging in sexual acts with the victims but of the victims’ bodies in the most intrusive, outrageous, unthinkable angles and views, they couldn’t be more violated,” she said. [NYP] — Miriam Hall
