RALEIGH (WTVD) --The Raleigh Police Department is seeking the public's help with the investigation of the rape of a pregnant woman Saturday night.
Shortly after 10:45 p.m., officers responded to a report of a rape in the 7000 block of Sandy Forks Road.
The victim, a 27-year-old woman, told police she was walking home from work in a wooded buffer area when she was grabbed from behind by a man who said he had a knife. The man ran away after committing the crime.
The only description the woman was able to provide was that the assailant was "light-skinned," but his ethnicity is not known.
A caller described the attack to authorities in a 911 call:
"I heard somebody screaming, 'Help me. Help me. Somebody raped me.' So I went outside because I knew it was her. So I ran outside and I saw her, her clothes were ripped and she didn't have any pants on ... she only had one shoe."
The female caller told police the victim was seven-months pregnant.
Detectives on the case are asking that anyone who may have been in the area between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. to call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at (919) 834-HELP or visit raleighcrimestoppers.org for text and email reporting options.
