http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/11-Year-Old-Girl-Raped.html The victim had just dropped her younger sister off at daycare and was walking to school along Kensington Avenue. The man followed her, grabbed her and forced her to walk six or seven blocks away. He pulled her down an alley near the intersection of Jasper and E. Westmoreland Streets, threatened to "shoot her" if she screamed and sexually assaulted her with such force she had to undergo surgery, according to the Daily News. The man had entered the daycare with the girl, her mother said Tuesday. She is baffled as to why daycare officials allowed him inside. A passerby saw the little girl sobbing and bleeding on the sidewalk about 9:45 a.m. and called police. Investigators aren't sure if the attacker fled or if she somehow escaped. "Quite frankly, right now, the account we have is from a very traumatized young girl," said Capt. Darby. The girl was hospitalized for her injuries and remained in stable condition Tuesday, police said. More at link.................... This was a particularily vicious crime against a child.. the neighbors deserve a pat on the back for capturing this guy.. Oh and once again its a guy who is well known to the police and who has a laundry list of crimes on his record including a prior suspected rape charge that was later dropped. I just hope that this poor little girl can recover from such a traumatic rape.. however I suspect she is going to have alifetime of damage to deal with as a result. We need a little more of this in some of these cities. I am not a fan of vigilante justice but sometimes I think its warrented. The citizens need to be more active in capturing these losers..
