Homeless woman says man raped, sodomized and robbed her

  • Follow Latest News

A homeless Augusta woman told police she was robbed, raped and sodomized early Thursday morning.

According to a Richmond County sheriff's report, the 37-year-old victim said she was in the 400 block of Greene Street between 2 and 3 a.m. when a man walked up behind her, grabbed her around the neck, pressed a gun against her neck and told her not to move.

The victim said the man took $120 from her and then raped and sodomized her.

The woman said she was eventually able to remove a knife from her pants and cut the assailant across the left side of his face.

The victim said she then fled west on Greene Street.

The sheriff office was notified of the incident Friday morning by a nurse in University Hospital’s emergency room, the report said.

The assailant was described as black, in his mid-40s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 165 pounds. He was wearing black pants, a black shirt with spots of gold-color trim and a baseball cap turned backward.

The victim said she had consumed an unknown amount of alcohol with her boyfriend before the incident.

Just because she is homeless

Emerydan, Augusta would cease being a hunting ground with the addition of two time-honored inventions known as the chain gang and the hanging noose.

Does seem kind of odd for a "homeless" person to be carrying that kind of cash on them

Emerydan, a woman with that

Emerydan, a woman with that kind of cash in that neighborhood at that time of night who had a sip or three doesn't surprise me at all. Did she perhaps escape from Harrisburg?

Somehow the thought of sodomy

Somehow the thought of sodomy on a homeless woman seems, how should I put it, nasty.

Jake, the words I'd choose

Jake, the words I'd choose are "scary" and "risky". Don't forget the knife that happened to be in her panties.....

Homeless or not, NO ONE

Homeless or not, NO ONE should be raped, molested and/or robbed! Homeless doesn't necessary means....dirty and dingy. In this economy, most are 2 paychecks from the streets! Yes, it's possible she had $100+....whatever the case, it's her body...it shouldn't be violiated! Too bad, she couldn't stick the knife in his butt and twist it!

You pack of ravening wolves!You assume it is alright to make fun of this woman because she is in an unfortunate position. You are all dogs of the worst kind, and you should be ashamed. There is a special place in Hell for the likes of you!!

I agree with you, mefirst

I agree with you, mefirst except that my dog is insulted and has filed a complaint against you for defamation of species. I would liken the criminal and some of the above posters to cockroachs. Let's break out the Raid....

I find it hard to believe

I find it hard to believe that a fine upstanding young black man in Augusta would have done such a thing. I'm tired of all these racists claiming that these crimes are being committed by blacks....Let's hear about some crimes by those evil blue eyed, blond haired kids for a change!

The woman worked hard for the money. Good for her and good that she defended herself. The assailant tried to get something for nothing. And it cost him any way!

If she said "no" even once,

If she said "no" even once, KSL, it was rape. And whether she was homeless, a prostitute, a drug user/dealer, she didn't deserve what happened to her. However, I still do agree that it was risky, nasty and criminal.

It is good some of you do not have the power of a sitting judge.
Your "justice" for this woman would be very lacking.
