The victim reported she was moving out of her apartment around 3 p.m. on the 7900 block of John Adams Court and was walking back and forth from the parking lot when a man approached her.
He asked if she needed help. She thought that was suspicious, as she did not know him. Approximately an hour later, she was in the apartment, when the same man came in through an open door, grabbed her, implied he had a knife, forced her to undress, and sexually assaulted her.
A neighbor heard the victim screaming and entered the apartment to intervene. The suspect pulled the neighbor, a 37-year-old woman, to the ground by her hair and ran off toward Rectory Lane. Both victims needed medical attention, and were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The incident occurred near Braddock Elementary School.
