    "The wooded area is behind the homes here. This is not a "rough part of the city." It's two and a half miles from Brier Creek. Crime can happen anywhere. Prayers for both the victim and the suspect. ...amber"

    What? its bad enough, I'm in this area all day long and there are creeps everywhere. Most bad areas are a block or just across the street that divide good areas. Had a friend get into an accident in the same Miami/70... and while laying in the car bleeding ... SEVERAL people stopped to strip parts off his car!!

    The wooded area is behind the homes here. This is not a "rough part of the city." It's two and a half miles from Brier Creek. Crime can happen anywhere. Prayers for both the victim and the suspect.

    Scary that this creeper is still roaming about. I wish we had a composite sketch to look at. I hope the victim can recover from this horrible crime.

    I find it amusing that WRAL would post this incident that happened in Durham, but failed to mention the TWO rapes that ocurred in Raliegh!

    There is crime all over Raleigh and the surrounding areas, but this news is rarely reported.

    In her OWN HOUSE? Too bad she didn't have a gun or at least a very large dog. This guy's a waste of skin if you ask me.

    Miami & 70 ... pretty busy, screaming and clawing out his eyes might have attracted some attention.

    Too bad she didn't have a gun to shoot him with. Would save the police alot of time searching for the suspect, if he lay dead on the ground.

    abby: it is the hoem of Duke University and its highly respected medical center....and crimes like this occur everywhere. this area of Durham where the crime was alleged is a rough part of the city.....name any large city with zero rough parts.
