Matthew Luna, 27, turned himself in to authorities at the 108th Precinct at 8:50 p.m. on Feb. 18. He was charged with rape, stalking, assault and committing a criminal sex act.

According to authorities, at 10:40 p.m. on Feb. 15, Luna allegedly followed a 20-year-old woman off a bus and engaged her in conversation in the vicinity of 54th Street and Skillman Avenue. Luna then allegedly pushed the woman against a car and raped her.
