Woman Allegedly Choked And Raped In Kensington
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A woman claims she was choked into unconsciousness and raped in Kensington on Wednesday night.
She told police that she willingly went into an abandoned building with a man, apparently for consensual sex, but he attacked her soon after they got inside. When she regained consicousness Thursday morning, she was only partially clothed and said she was raped.
The attacker is described as a heavy-set hispanic man; he does not match the sketch going around of the man dubbed the “Kensington Strangler.”
She’s the fourth woman to survive a similar attack. Three other women were killed — DNA evidence has linked one man to those deaths. And police are investigating to see if there are possibly two dangerous men on the loose.
