Oakland, California Woman Records her Rapist with Cell Phone Camera
A 28-year-old woman in Oakland, California shot a video of a man who broke into her home, robbed her and sexually assaulted her.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle and the Associated Press, the man, an African-American in his early 40s, forced his way into the woman’s West Oakland home early Tuesday morning and confronted her. She then cooly recorded him stealing items from her home, calmly talking to him and asking him to leave. He did not respond.
Instead, he briefly left with the stolen goods before returning to her home and sexually assaulting her.
She was treated in a local hospital for her injuries.
The victim says she wants the video posted below to be shared as much as possible so that her attacked may be brought to justice.
Oakland police are now searching for the suspect. Anyone with information is urged to call the Oakland Police Department Sexual Assault Hotline at (510) 637-0298.
