Robeson County woman raped in home

Posted February 3, 2010

— A 34-year-old Robeson County woman was raped in her home Monday night, authorities said Wednesday.

The woman told investigators that a man broke into her home shortly after she returned from her mother's house. The man pushed her to the floor of the kitchen and raped her, she said.

Deputies found her with red marks on her face and arm, a scratch across her chest and a bloody lip.

No description of her assailant was released.

Robeson County Sheriff's Office investigators said the case isn't related to a series of sexual assaults in the Fayetteville area.

Six women in Fayetteville and a seventh in Hope Mills reported being sexually assaulted since late June. In each case, the victim said a man broke her home – usually an apartment – late at night while she was alone, according to police reports. In an eighth case, a burglar tried to sexually assault a Fayetteville woman before fleeing.

Fayetteville police said a Fort Bragg soldier who was charged Monday with two burglaries and one sexual assault on post in December is a person of interest in the cases.

    Granny, I'm inclined to agree with you to an extent.

    Granny, will you stop saying that. Its simply not true. Other than paying for it, I don't know anywhere you can go and "get lucky" on the spur of the moment. Yes, in a rare circumstance. But its simply not true.

    Prayers to this woman. I hope her community rallies around her. A rapist is a COWARD.

    Poor thing!

    Praying for her well-being and praying they find the selfish animal doing this quickly.

    Thank God he didn't kill or otherwise harm her.

    God bless.
