Just got word from my mother's best friend that her elderly mother was raped last night, on May 1, 2001. I am unsure of the time of the occurance but I do know, however, that the rapist broke into said Elderly woman's home right before assaulting her. While I cannot disclose the elderly woman's name I can say that it happened in the area around Pheonix Ave in Cranston. Please, if anyone knows anything or has any tip AT ALL, please contact local cranston police department, or email me even. my email is [email protected] Thank you for taking the time to read this, & I hope this helps in the capturing of this sick person. We cant take the chance that this happens again.
Just so you know

Youre right about the Pheonix Ave, but the exact street was fairweather avenue.

First my expression of sympathy and concern to both you, your mom and the victim.

I am a close neighbor and heard the report this morning. A detective visited another neighbor and gave very few details other than the fact it occurred at 1:00 a.m. and advised that neighbor to inform and warn other women in the neighborhood.

I am writing to correct your information on the exact location which is Fairweather Avenue. Fairweather Avenue is off Pontiac Avenue which is not anywhere near Phoenix Avenue.

As you have expressed, I also hope this individual is caught and ask anyone who has information to contact the Cranston Police Department.

Thank you "Neighbor" for correcting me. I wrote this as soon as I found out, when I had very little info. I do know that it IS NOT the son, he has already been cleared...trust me, that was my thought too (as well as his own fam). I wouldnt have put it past him either. BUT nonetheless, he's been cleared. He was the first to be swabbed. We are betting it is someone they know though, because nothing was taken...he just broke in and assaulted her. Whoever could do this, is beyond my imagination, and they need to get caught so that it doesnt happen again. Cranston Detectives say it could take MONTHS.:( If you have any info, please go to the Cranston Police. If youre afraid to do that please atleast send an anonymous tip.

Thank you for the kind comments on the son. (How comforting) The family NEVER thought he did it. We do however ask for prayers and best wishes for the victim.

Sorry about the son comment its just I've heard sooo many unimaginable things about him. But it definetely was not the daughters boyfriend I know for a fact he was home asleep he doesn't have a car only a bike and he wont ride it at night. Detectives cleared him too the last I heard.

Umm why why would I make that up he's living in his sisters garage who happens to be my mother who I live with. That morning I woke up to a police car parked in my yard. The detectives where goin to call me while i was at work because I saw him come home but they didn't bother because they were already ruling him out. If he was still a suspect don't ya think they would have contacted the last person to see him that night. So please don't accuse me of lying about something you really have no clue about. And yes it is about the victim and about finding who really did it. You accused my uncle and I told you there's no way he could have did it. Im sorry being wrong upset you so much.
