SFPD Says Mission District Rape Was Never Reported
Mission Mission reported earlier this week an e-mail the blog had received about a rape that supposedly occurred at 19th and Capp streets early Monday morning. After that, this Facebook message below posted by user Tuula Ala, who claims to be a friend of the victim, was being circulated around blogs:
Okay people. I need your help, and this shit is important. One of my friends was VIOLENTLY ASSAULTED and RAPED by two men she did not know Sunday night at 19th and Capp. You wanna get graphic? I'm talking stitches in the cervix. With her permission, I've written to the two local Mission blogs, asking them to publish this incident. Nothing. Police help? NOTHING. Then today my friend saw two dudes walking down the street matching the descriptions of the attackers. One had scratches on his face that correspond with the attack. Two Hispanic men, between 20-25. One stocky, one lean, one with obvious scratches on his face. So help me out. Share this info. At the very least, maybe we can tell women in the area to be on the alert. Any other suggestions?? I feel helpless and ANGRY.Mission Local later talked to the 30-year-old victim, who confirmed that she was jumped by two men as she walked home from Bender's Bar. They dragged her to a driveway on Capp Street where they allegedly raped her while she punched and scratched them, she said.
The victim, who did not want to give her name, said she went to SF General for an examination and reported it to police.
Sgt. Michael Andraychak said SFPD has no record of the attack, and officials at SF General also told reporters they were unaware of the rape.
The victim was quoted saying she turned to local bloggers because she didn't want this to happen to anyone else; however, police say can't investigate the incident until a report is filed.
"We would encourage the victim of any such incident to immediately report it to police," Andraychak said.
