91-year-old Valley woman raped, police looking for perpetrator
VALLEY, AL (WTVM) -
Valley police are looking
for the suspect who they say viciously attacked a 91-year-old woman and raped
her inside her home on 55th Street.
Saturday night around
8:30, valley police say a 911 call came in from an elderly lady needing help at
her Valley home.
"She was locking the door of her residence… there
was a man on her back porch, he asked if he could come in and use the phone,
she said no and that's when he forced his way in," said Valley Police Chief
The 91-year-old victim
suffered minor injuries when the suspect pushed her to the floor along with the
injuries inflicted during the rape.
She was taken by ambulance
to a local hospital, and investigators hope they have DNA on the suspect.
Meanwhile, police say it does not appear the
man was armed with a gun or a knife, and the elderly lady was physically unable
to fight back.
"She described the suspect
as a black male, in his late teens or early 20's, he was clean shaven, with a
slim build, short hair with a white shirt with yellow lettering and blue jean shorts
or blue athletic shorts," said Chief Weldon.
A neighbor told police
they had seen a man matching that description wandering the neighborhood
earlier that Saturday.
"We do have a name and
investigators are actively looking for this guy," said Chief Weldon.
If you have any
information that may help police locate a suspect, you are asked to please give
them a call at (334) 756-5200.
