Woman Still Waiting For Police To Identify Officer She Says Raped Her
(Memphis) The 26-year-old woman who told us she was raped by a Memphis Police Officer is still afraid to show her face.
But she is not giving up her fight to make sure her attacker is caught, “I don’t have any info. The.”
She just knows the officer offered her a lift in a Police Crime Scene van he was driving as she was walking to the store.
She said when he took her back home, he began touching her in her private areas.
A witness saw it all.
But the 26-year-old still doesn’t have the name of the officer.
She said police met with her Wednesday to show her a photo line up, ”None of the officers even closely matched the description I gave the people.”
She also filed a police report, but for days couldn’t get a copy of it.
One of her supporters wonders why.
“I think what they are doing is trying to clean things up in their area, their department because of who this individual is. They know exactly who this is and they are stalling for his purpose,” says Deborah Lowe, an advocate for the woman.
She was back at the Victim’s Center Friday, waiting for police to fax over the police report.
Workers at the Shelby County Rape Crisis Center told us the reports serve a purpose and the center helps victims obtain them.
“In order to get victim’s compensation a victim must file a police report to prove a crime did indeed happen,” said Anna Whalley of the Shelby County Rape Crisis Center.
After a lot of waiting, the 26-year-old finally got her report.
But, it had no details about the crime and no information about the officer.
“I am very determined. They are gonna do what they have to do with my situation because I am not going to stop,” she told us.
She believes the officer who attacked her was high-ranking because he had on all black and stars on his lapel.
She said he told her he was a Crime Scene Investigator.
Police tell us they are aware of the allegation and are investigating, but no officer has been identified.
