    I thought I read somewhere that this event is similar to another assault on a teenager in the last couple weeks??

  • She most likely went to Banneker too. Ouch. Hope they find this sick guy.

    How did he force her into his car? at 4 in the afternoon on a busy day? I suspect she knows him and got in his car. Does that make assault ok? never. But I think this is not a case of some random drive by assault.

      it’s also a huge assumption on your part

      If she knew him, wouldn’t she have given the police a name instead of a general description? Pls. don’t blame the victim, too little information for that…

        Quit it with the “don’t blame the victim” stuff. There was no victim-blaming in that statement.
