PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The first of four alleged victims expected to take the witness stand, testifies she was pulled off the street and into a car and raped by the alleged Kensington rapist, who is accused of raping three women and a fourth attempted rape in November of last year (see related story).

The witness has testified defendant Marcos Camacho held a knife to her neck and raped her inside the car. She says as he did this, she stared at a picture of her two children on her phone screensaver.

She reported the attack after he ordered her to leave the car and drove away.

The prosecutor says DNA links Camacho to the crime, but the Defense Attorney has tried to undermine her credibility  suggesting this case is about getting even in the opening statements.

Defense Attorney Alfonso Gambone told the jury Camacho, who is married with a child, will testify he had sex with this woman, but it was consensual and that he didn’t pay. Gambone says Camacho denies any physical connection with the other three alleged victims.
