Indianapolis, IN - Police are searching for a rapist who attacked a woman inside her home. They say the victim's young child became a witness to the crime. It is a crime unsettling to even the most veteran of officers.
"It is rather disturbing on a number of levels," said IMPD Sgt. Linda Jackson.
Early Wednesday morning in the 1000 block of West 33rd, police say a young mother was raped in front of her own son.
"I heard him screaming," said one neighbor.
Neighbors say they heard some type of commotion, but thought nothing of it, until now.
"It's just sad 'cause she ain't even been there a week. She ain't even been there a good week," said neighbor Lisa Coleman.
"To know that it's right across the street - could've been us - 'cause we were sitting here watching TV. This window was open," said neighbor Carmella Johnson.
In fact, the victim told police the suspect likely gained entrance through an open bedroom window. She was with her child on the couch in the living room when she says a masked man came in with a knife and threatened to cut her if she didn't take her clothes off. As the rape occurred, police say, the suspect yelled at her son to shut up.
"During the course of the crime the suspect yelled at the child to be quiet to quit crying, when obviously the child was upset. There was something really bad going on in the house," said Sgt. Jackson.
"I can't imagine," said Coleman.
On a street full of young children, it's enough to startle already anxious neighbors who are currently reconsidering their decision to live here.
The victim told police the suspect took her cell phone as he left. She waited 24 hours to report the crime to police. The suspect's description is vague, as he was wearing a mask.
