Atlanta Special Victims Detectives say they have few leads in the rape and robbery of a 19-year-old. Now, they're turning to the public for help.
"He told me because he's from the streets, after he robbed me and raped me, he was going to kill me," the victim, who is not being identified, told channel 2's Erin Coleman.
The victim said she wanted to share her story so that what happened to her, doesn't happen to anyone else.
On Oct. 7, the woman said she trusted friends to get her a ride home from their apartment complex in Forest park.
In surveillance video obtained from the complex, you can see her get into the car with two men she thinks are OK. But the victim said she later found out, her
so-called friends found the men through a social networking site called Mocospace.com.
The victim said a few minutes into the ride, "the driver comes around to my side, opened the door. He has a gun."
The victim said she was robbed, raped, and threatened, first by one of the men in a neighborhood she'd never seen and then by the other as they were driving along Interstate 75.
"It didn't make sense, but he just kept apologizing," she said of one of the men after the assault. He chose to let her go, dropping her off at the Kensington MARTA station with
$4, her cellphone and keys.
Detective Donna Reith with the Atlanta Police Department's Special Victims' Unit said the best clue right now is the car. It appears to be an old sheriff's deputy cruiser.
"It's the two tone, looks to be blue colored with a white or tan roof. Late model probably '95 or above," Reith said. "It's really going to stand out."
The victim said she's praying someone recognizes the car.
"I want them to be caught. I feel as though they're still out there they're going to do it again," she said.
Police ask anyone with information on this case to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
