CMPD Investigating Rape At University City Apartment

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A violent attack inside her own apartment.  A woman told police she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted in the middle of the afternoon at her University City Apartment.

Police say it happened at the Arwen Vista Apartments off North Tryon Street.  A 21-year-old woman told police she was kidnapped, raped, and sodomized Sunday around noon.

CMPD has not said how the suspect got inside the woman’s apartment.  But, according to the police incident report, she did not know her attacker.  Most of the neighbors we spoke with were stunned to hear such a violent crime happened so close to their home.  A few of them told WCCB Charlotte they were already considering moving out.

CMPD says they do not have a description of the suspect.  If you know anything about this case, call police.
