…a 24-year-old Seattle woman was living a nightmare at the Pike Place Market.
A North Seattle woman is recovering after being knocked unconscious and raped near a popular Seattle tourist attraction. Police say the 24-year-old was sexually assaulted in an alley near the Pike Place Market.
According to friends of the victim, she was on her way to job interview on a Saturday afternoon when she was savagely attacked.
“The guy knocked her out cold. Hit her in the temple, she was there for hours, knocked out while he raped her repeatedly.”
After being beaten and sexually assaulted by the stranger, friends say the badly injured 24-year-old victim struggled to make it back to her North Seattle apartment.
Downtown neighbors like Paige McGehee are concerned about the sexually motivated attack, because, it happened in broad daylight with hundreds of people nearby.
“That surprises me actually, I think we have a very aware city,” said McGehee.
Friends say the victim is doing better physically, but, it still very emotionally fragile from the attack. The victim was only able to provide a vague description of her attacker to police. Officers say he is an African American man.
Holy shit. Full story here.
