On Oct. 18, a 20-year-old woman was raped on the sidewalk near the intersection of Fourth and I Street at around 11:50 p.m.
Sgt. Mike Munoz of the Davis Police Department (DPD) told KCRA 3 that the woman wasn’t able to provide a detailed description of the rapist due to the darkness and due to the attack occurring from behind.
The attacker smashed the woman’s cell phone to prevent her from calling for help. At the time, the attacker wasn’t wielding a weapon or wearing a mask.
Munoz said the woman suffered scrapes and cuts on one of her legs and foot.
The DPD plans to increase patrolling around the area. The police said this is the first reported stranger rape in Davis this year.
