An assistant hotel manager who kidnapped an escort, tied her up and raped her at knifepoint repeatedly at a hotel near Central Park where he worked, was sentenced to 14 years to life in prison on Tuesday. “Today is the day you’re going to die,” former Rodeway Inn employee Farhan Khan, 28, told the victim during the terrifying ordeal at the W. 71st St. lodge. The two-hour torture session, beginning around 1 a.m., took place on Dec. 30, 2015. The victim, then 35, bravely confronted Khan in court at his trial — and again at the sentencing Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court.
