The evil boyfriend charged with forcing his girlfriend to parade naked down a frigid Harlem street as he recorded the humiliation — and later posted it online — was hit with upgraded charges for the disturbing crime.
Jason Melo, 22, was arraigned Thursday on a new felony coercion rap in Manhattan Supreme Court for forcing his child’s mother into the street wrapped in only a towel on Jan. 17, court papers show.
And he admitted to it in a voicemail investigators uncovered during the investigation, prosecutors said.
Melo is accused of choking and punching the victim in front of their newborn daughter after he claimed he caught her sending naked pictures to other men then forcing her half nude into the street.
On the video, he calls her a “whore” and “b itch,” then rips the towel off her, leaving her completely exposed except for a pair of boots, in freezing temperatures.
After she tries to shield herself in between two cars, he tells her, “This is what you deserve.”
