Hello..In 1989 I was kidnapped, sexually assaulted and threatened to be killed by a resident of Old Orchard Beach. This resident and his family live on Smithwheel Road. I feel this sicko got away with this crime because of his family having some pull with the town. I was brutally beaten, sexually assaulted and told I was going to be killed. After two hours of this traumatic experience, I got away from this guy and ran through a field until I saw a street light, followed it till I came to a home and pounded on the door at 4 a.m. Only to find out later, that this was the assailant's cousin's home that I went to for safety. The case never made it to court and I will never understand why. I was taken to the hospital and went through all of the usual, very long and detailed examination for rape victims. I was filthy and all bloody...I am scarred with this trauma for the rest of my life. The flashbacks and nightmares persist. I had to type this for you women that may think as I did..."This can't happen to me". Be aware that it is possible, unfortunately. Always have some kind of a defense plan. If I didn't get away, I would have been left for dead. Meanwhile, this sexual assailant remains free! How sick is that?

I AM SO SORRY THIS HAPPENED TO YOU. NO WOMEN SHOULD HAVE TO LIVE WITH THOSE MEMORIES. MANY THINGS WE THINK CANT HAPPEN TO US CAN AND JUST MIGHT IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL. I TRAVEL A GREAT DEAL FOR MY JOB AND MY AUNT ALWAYS SAYS TO ME BAD THINGS HAVE TO HAPPEN TO SOMEONE BE CAREFUL. WHAT IS CAREFUL? CRIMINALS ARE CRAFTY.
I RECENTLY FOUND THAT THE LAWS IN MAINE ARE SET UP TO BENEFIT THE CRIMINALS NOT THE VICTIMS. STAY STRONG. AS CRAFTY AS CRIMINALS ARE THEY ALWAYS DO SOMETHING THAT GETS THEM CAUGHT.

Thank you very much for your response. Yes, you must be as careful as possible...always look over your shoulder...don't trust any stranger...most of all...have some kind of weapon in your hand (or nearby) depending on the situation. Even if it's a car key...anything! Just kick where it hurts and run...poke him in the eyes...scream....I took Martial Arts, but he was stronger! It still amazes me how I escaped...and the fact that I'm still alive. Yes, I believe the laws protect the criminals...and when..as in my case...it's somebody that owned a lot of the town (Blow)..it's even worse. Thanks again!

Yes, it was Brad Blow...I feel free to say his name because he should be on the sex offender's list. I don't care anymore...if my friends had their way, he would have been blow-n away when this happened to me...but I could never be involved in such a crime. Till this day, I remember this traumatic event like it was yesterday. The Old Orchard Beach police Department could have got him, I will always believe that...but they set him free. I was dumb and didn't file a civil suit, as I wasn't familiar with these things. Had I known, I would have. They wanted me to pick him out in pictures...at which time I was hoping to pick him out in a line up as opposed to a picture...especially since he has a brother who looks like his twin. That sure makes things more difficult and tricky. Somehow, I may be able to get this story out there one day.
