Deputies believe attack was hallucination

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office has closed the case involving a Goshen woman who reported she fought off a rapist in her home on Sept. 14, authorities said.

The woman told police she'd fired a gun and kicked the intruder between the legs after the man, armed with a "razor blade" tried to undress her at a residence on the 4000 block of Burning Tree Lane.

Her shot missed, and the man scaled a fence and escaped, according to an initial police report.

Sheriff's Sgt. Blaise Dresser said deputies believe the woman hallucinated the attack while under the influence of prescribed medication.
