Three rape reports under investigation

March 28, 2006


Lawrence Police have taken three unrelated reports of rapes in recent days:

¢ A 14-year-old girl told police she was raped by a 16-year-old Lawrence male on Nov. 24 in a car in an unknown part of the city. She reported the incident Feb. 24. Police recently finished investigating and sent a report to the Douglas County District Attorney's Office for possible charges.

¢ A 13-year-old Oskaloosa girl reported being raped between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. Thursday by an unidentified man at a gathering in the northwestern part of the city. She had come to Lawrence with friends, and the suspect was not known to her but was part of a group of people she was with, police said.

¢ A 12-year-old girl told police a 27-year-old family member raped her between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. March 20 in the southwest part of Lawrence. No arrests had been made as of Monday.

Hey, parkay, what say we blame rapes on someone new and novel?

Like, you know, the rapists? The people who make the decision to forcibly have sex with another human being?

Nice to see two of our usual 'Rush To Blame Someone, Anyone' crowd on top of things without troubling themselves with little details like compassion for the victims.

However, I'd like to take a second to extend my sympathies to the girls and their families. I hope that they're able to get past this experience and grow up to be emotionally healthy, happy women.
