Man abducts Midtown woman, rapes her twice

Police are on the hunt for a man who abducted a 27-year-old woman from a Midtown apartment and sexually assaulted her.

Police said the man forced the tenant out of a laundry room at an apartment building on the 600 block of Prentis and sexually assaulted her in an alley at 11 p.m. Sunday. The suspect, a young black male, then forced her to walk with him as he tried to withdrawal money from her account using an ATM.

After several failed attempts, the suspect forced the victim to walk to East Palmer and Woodward and sexually assaulted her again.

Police couldn’t provide a clearer photo of the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (313) 596-1950 or CrimeStoppers at (800) SPEAK-UP.

    Stay out of Detroit.

    This is going to help repopulation of the city. Why is Snyder bothering to try to fix this city unless he is going to merge it to change the demographics. It can’t work as it is. Does fifty years of history mean nothing?

      I suspect the victim in this case is probably done with Detroit, and based upon what I’ve read and seen in the video, it’s probably in her best interest to go. Surviving Detroit requires a willingness and ability to transition into full combat mode on a dime. The media and boosters are contributing to a false sense of security among downtown and Midtown residents, workers, and visitors. There’s something incredibly wrong about luring the naive into a sketchy situation for self-serving purposes, while feeding them a constant stream of false information and withholding important facts. The victim’s guard was down in this case, because she didn’t realize it needed to be up AT ALL TIMES. She wasn’t prepared for combat, because she didn’t realize fighting might be necessary. She’s fortunate to still be alive after leaving the initial crime scene with the unpoliced neighborhood monster who slipped in under the imaginary wire. Attempting to establish a tiny island of prosperity and safety surrounded by miles and miles of squalid, violent lawlessness is pure folly. The criminals are relentless, and they don’t care if they do by chance get arrested, convicted, and sent to prison. It’s considered a rite of passage.

        Very, very true. As you have stated in the past, you have to make sure word is out that you will ” f ” them up if they come near you. Many of these young and inexperienced people are being enticed into a situation that sounds like a big adventure, and for which they are wholly unprepared. It is like leading lambs to the slaughter.

      • Well said, as always.

    “The suspect remains on the loose.”
    I see and hear this sentence too many times when it comes to crime in Detroit. The message to criminals is clear: You can do what you want, when you want, and how often you want in Detroit without fear of apprehension. And it doesn’t seem like anything is being done to make the city safer. The lack of concern for and lack of willingness to protect the citizens of this city is appalling. What is it going to take to get our city’s officials to finally start stepping up and working for its constituency instead of killing it with neglect, indifference, and contempt? Can anyone answer that question?

    • Agreed. “Want to commit crimes with no repercussions? Come to Detroit!”

        Just saw where two women in their 80’s were beaten and robbed in their west side home early this morning. The cops uncharacteristically showed up in time to see the perps leaving the home, but characteristically missed apprehending them. It just sends the message to criminals that law enforcement does not exist in the city, and to citizens that you are not now nor will you ever be safe. It’s chilling.
