because this apartment complex is not a place to be alone at. She apparently did not know but I would not get out alone from a car during the day, let alone at night.
Portage Police are there alot.

There is something odd about this story. Why did she wait to report it and what about the person that picked her up? Didn't they know it happened? hmmmmmm They really did not give much info in the article.
Fear, Denial, Shock, Just because some people many file false reports does not mean everyone does. If this is a true story - Have compassion people - Someone hurt, took something that did not belong to them, if this happend to you or a female of someone you loved how much information would you want posted for everyone to read about. This women has to live with this the rest of her life and everyone is making rude coments. What has this world come to. Just because other people do wrong in filing false reports gives you no reason to lower yourself to be a judge....

Definitely something fishy with the story.
First thing I'd do is call 911 if someone just raped me at gunpoint. I understand trauma, etc blah blah but when I just experienced something traumatic the first thing I think of is calling for professional help of some sort.... police, medical personnel.
We all handle trauma different. I hope you did not experience the same thing that this poor women did. We can all say this is what we would do, but I think that when a gun is pointed at us it may take us off guard.

What's wrong with just assuming it's true until it is proven otherwise. This is probably one of the reasons why women don't report as often as they should.

When Wood tv took the colon out of the headline on topix, it changed the whole meaning.
