A CSU student’s mother is hopeful a composite sketch will help
police locate two men who she said attacked and raped her daughter
The 23-year-old woman was walking home alone early Saturday
morning along West Myrtle Street when a man offered her a ride.
“She got into the backseat,” the woman’s mother said in an
interview with CBS News 4. “She realized they weren’t taking her in
the right direction.”
The car then reportedly drove to an area unfamiliar to the woman
and the driver got into the back seat.
“He was slapping her, he was pulling at her clothes. She was
fighting him back,” the woman’s mother said.
The driver allegedly raped the woman. The two men then abandoned
her in the area of Shields Street and Vine Drive.
The woman was then aided by a stranger who offered her a ride
home. She accepted and told her family at that point she said to
herself, “What else could happen to me?”
Fort Collins Police Services is continuing to look for this good
Samaritan, in addition to the two attackers.
“I could have been identifying my daughter at the hospital
morgue,” the woman’s mother said.
Instead she’s making copies of the suspect’s police sketches and
hanging them throughout Fort Collins.
“I want them to find him and I want to make sure he can’t do
this to another girl,” the woman’s mother said.
FCPS calls this case high priority and say there were no
witnesses to the crimes.
The Collegian was unable to reach FCPS before press time to get
a copy of the suspect’s composite sketch.
