WTOP reported:

“The man bound the woman’s hands and blindfolded her before raping her, the police report said. The man also robbed her of some of her items.”

    That poor woman will look at the world differently for the rest of her life.

    There’s something very odd to this story (besides the obvious). The news was all over it Saturday morning but then I haven’t heard a peep since which is kind of peculiar given the location of this horrible crime. It’s also strange that I haven’t seen many cops in the immediate neighborhood since then. I’m not sure what to make of it all. I’ve read conflicting reports as well and the cops seem perplexed by it all. I feel terrible for this woman and I hope the perpetrator is caught and locked up for life. I apologize if this came off insensitive at all- not my intention.

      And this is why women are afraid of reporting rape.

      • houseintherear

        yup.

        • northeazy

          Women don’t report rape out of fear the news cycle will move on after a day after a high profile breaking and entering in a neighborhood where the former president and current president’s family all live?

          • Duponter

            No, they don’t report it because people immediately try to poke holes in their story and say something doesn’t seem right about their story. I know you’re not nearly stupid enough to not know that is what Neighbor was pointing out. If you have an actual argument, make it.

            +1 to Duponter.

      Even if there’s something about this story that we’re not privy to, unwanted, non-consensual sex is rape, mkay?

      Translation from the peanut gallery: “We should not use critical thinking skills to assess the veracity of crimes or that there might be a peculiar backstory because feels.”

      • BookaholicAnonymous

        Are you a law enforcement officer? A prosecutor? A criminal defense attorney? A judge? A member of a petit or grand jury? If the answer to each of these questions is, “no”, why do you feel the need to “assess the veracity of crimes,” particularly based on information that is incomplete at best?

    Just a few weeks ago people were saying how safe Kalorama would be. Just shows you, crime can happen anywhere
