PHOENIX, AZ — Police in Phoenix are looking for a man who police say raped and tortured a woman in her apartment throughout the night, even forcing her to drink bleach.

According to police, the attacker entered the 56-year-old victim’s apartment through a back door last Friday, then proceeded to torture and rape her repeatedly throughout the night. He even forced her to drink bleach. The victim told police he smoked meth all night and told her that when he was finished with her, he was going to kill her.

He was never able to follow through with that because a cab driver knocked on the victim’s door the following morning to take her to a scheduled doctor’s appointment. The suspect was taking a shower at the time, allowing the victim to flee the apartment as her attacker ran away. The cab driver then called 911.

“She came out nude, bounded with her arms tied and her mouth gagged — she was unable to speak,” said cab driver Gerardo Reyes. “She was just really scared and startled after what happened to her. What I’ve learned this happened last night, so who knows how long she was this way.”

The victim’s neighbors were alerted after the 56-year-old victim began knocking on their doors yelling for help.

“When she yelled for help, I opened my door and she was outside, completely nude,” said Carli Patterson, one of the neighbors. “Her hands were tied behind her back and there were two scarves around her mouth. She was gagged and tied up with bruises all over.”

Police say the woman did not know her attacker, who is described as a black man between 25 to 30 years old, medium height and build, shoulder-length dreadlocks and wearing a baseball cap backwards, a gray T-shirt, dark shorts and flip-flops or sandals.

Be sure to check out the following video from KPHO, where the cameraman seems to enjoy looking at the female detective in the pink shirt as much as I do.

  • One has to wonder if the taxi driver hadn’t knocked on the door if this guy would have really let his victim make it through the night! Poor lady! I am so glad she managed to escape…I just hope they catch this slime ball!!

  • This story would not have had a happy ending if it hadn’t been for the cab driver. Nice to see someone take action instead of running away or ignoring the situation.  That poor woman has a long road of recovery ahead. What a nightmare!!

    “The suspect was taking a shower at the time”

    Thankfully, to be the best possible victim host, Emily Post has taught me to keep a spare bar of soap with a hidden razor blade within it.

    When suddenly he hits that soprano high note, I’ll know his manhood has reached the shower floor.

    Take that you clean, bloody criminal.

  • Sam

    What kind of idiot criminal takes a shower BEFORE he kills his victim? What, he likes to be a clean canvas before getting splattered with blood?

  • Sam

    Oh, and what’s with the bleach? Did he think it was going to work it’s way through her system eradicating evidence as it went along??
    Meth, boys and girls. SEVERELY impacts your logical thinking.

    ” wearing a baseball cap backwards, a gray T-shirt, dark shorts and flip-flops or sandals.”

    We’ll never find him.  Everybody knows Meth Heads have more outfits than Lady Gaga.  We’re doomed!!

  • JGo555

    He’ll be found quite fast because his ass is so methed up he won’t remember to cut his dreads.

    I hope he fucking rots in jail.

  • JGo555

    Dumbass more than likely has a record (you don’t get this criminally fucked up crazy the first day of committing your first crime) & he left a whole bunch of DNA (in hair probably) in her shower.

    We’ll find his ass.

    This dude has been watching too much CSI with the whole bleach crap.  I hope this woman can somehow come back from this but I imagine that will be hard. 

    They said that he came in through the back door. I always want to know exactly what happened – learn from others mistakes.   I am a spaz about checking windows and doors and turning on the alarm before I go to bed and I still think I hear noises when the Mr. CT is on a business trip.  Great, so now I will be even more paranoid tonight.

  • pikeman

    Wow, I wonder how he managed to get dressed so fast and escape. Probably some twisted transient, by the sounds of it.

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    The saddest part of this whole story is the perpetrator entered as the victim was headed to her family room
    to watch the “Home Alone” trilogy.

  • LeaveMeBe

    This right here is real life horror. I still have chills from reading it. It reminded me of the Petit family and I had nightmares for weeks after reading what happened to them. 🙁

  • Zazen

    ‘The victim told police he smoked meth all night’ ….The hell you say! A meth smoker being inhuman? Naw, never happen.

    I’m going to hold out hope that he’s somehow gunned down in a standoff with police. 

  • kimbev69

    me too…i still have a tear in my eye and i choke up when i think how close she was to escaping…and everything after the bank happened so fast…but i don’t understand how it could be they raped her and did all the rest and the cops were basically outside

  • sugarpie

    I guess next time he’ll remember to chain them in the bathroom while he’s busy showering. 

  • JohnQknowitall

    Fucker. Most drugs I don’t give a damn about, but meth and crack users and dealers need to be removed from the general public.

    This is so fucked up and scarey.

  • Snickering_Hydra

    Apparently would-be rapists are noticing the fact that older women are easier targets.

    All together a pretty gruesome picture. That guy must have been pretty messed up since his actions are all over the place. Rape, torture, and forced bleach consumption aren’t ordinary rape and flee tactics. What’s really strange is the description of the suspect: black, shoulder length dreadlocks, flip flops…this guy sounds more like a guy who would be smoking weed and listening to Bob Marley. Not to mention this all happening in Arizona, I was expecting a hispanic assailant at the beginning.

    In any case, the benefit of her being older seems to be that she was using a cab to go to her doctor’s appointment. If she had been going to drive there herself, she would have missed more than her checkup.

    wow, it’s a rape ape….

  • onlyme356

    Described as a young “dark skinned” male with dreadlocks. Since when was it wrong to say african-american or black? Had the suspect been white, hispanic or asian I’m sure the media wouldn’t say “light skinned”, “brown skinned” or “yellow skinned”
