Yesterday, police were flooded with calls from media outlets after news hit a local blog detailing a vicious rape in the city's Mission District. After doing a bit of digging, police confirmed that they have no reports of this rape on file.
Mission Mission reported earlier this week an e-mail the blog had received about a rape that supposedly occurred at 19th and Capp streets early Monday morning. After that, this Facebook message below posted by user Tuula Ala, who claims to be a friend of the victim, was being circulated around blogs:
Okay people. I need your help, and this shit is important. One of
my friends was VIOLENTLY ASSAULTED and RAPED by two men she did not
know Sunday night at 19th and Capp. You wanna get graphic? I'm talking
stitches in the cervix. With her permission, I've written to the two
local Mission blogs, asking them to publish this incident. Nothing.
Police help? NOTHING. Then today my friend saw two dudes walking down the street
matching the descriptions of the attackers. One had scratches on his
face that correspond with the attack. Two Hispanic men, between 20-25.
One stocky, one lean, one with obvious scratches on his face. So help me
out. Share this info. At the very least, maybe we can tell women in the
area to be on the alert. Any other suggestions?? I feel helpless and
