Disabled Rape Victim Says Cries For Help Were Ignored And Police Didn’t Believe Her
The woman, who has multiple sclerosis, says she was knocked out and kidnapped, taken to a house and raped and beaten. And authorities accused her of being a prostitute.
The alleged victim, who asked to be identified only as Kris, said she fell asleep on a bus on Dec. 5 and wound up lost in downtown Trenton. She got off the bus and tried to look for her route back home to Hamilton when a man began to follow her. Then everything went black, she said.
She woke up inside an abandoned house on Farragut Avenue, on a mattress on the floor, surrounded by dishes and garbage.
“You know when you get a new mattress and it has that plastic sheet on it? I remember that, and my leg hitting plates and dishes and you heard clinking sounds or whatever, and someone was on top of me,” Kris told NBC 4 New York.
She said one of the two men was extremely violent, continuously striking her face and covering her mouth…
“’You sure about her MS?’ That’s all they kept asking me,” said Kris’ mother. “‘Are you sure she didn’t fall and this isn’t MS?’ They wanted to turn everything around, make her the victim all over again, and it was crap. Plain and simple crap. They didn’t want to do their job.”
