James Ramseur, one of the four teen-agers shot by subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz last year, was arrested today on charges of raping and robbing a young woman on a roof landing last month, authorities said.

Police arrested Ramseur, 18, after the victim identified him in a lineup at the 48th Precinct in the Bronx, sources said. Ramseur was wounded by Goetz in a widely publicized subway shooting last Dec. 22. Goetz, 37, said he fired in self-defense as the four youths menaced him.
