Several inconsistencies have emerged in the alleged Monday morning rape at the corner of 19th and Capp.
Originally, a letter circulated by a friend of the alleged victim claimed the rape was reported to the police and the victim received stitches at San Francisco General Hospital:
The rape was reported at SFGH as well as in a police report, and also to SF WAR. If necessary, my friend is willing to provide hospital records with her name blacked out as evidence.
Initially, in spite of not reporting the crime to the police, the victim was quite willing to talk to the press in hopes of preventing future rapes:
The victim, who sounded shaken up by the experience, came forward to Mission Local because she wants to warn others about the incident, she said.
“I don’t want someone else in this situation,” she said. “Hopefully we can get people notified and be careful.”
The original Facebook post authored by the victim's friend, which claimed the police and Mission blogs were not responding to the crime, has been since deleted from Facebook. SF Appeal then contacted said friend, who provided the victim's phone number. However, that conversation did not yield any answers:
When contacted by the Appeal, however, the woman who answered the phone said she was done talking about the attack, ending the call by saying.
"Lose my number. I'm done with this fucking shit, goodbye."
We can only hope this was a fabricated story, otherwise this speaks volumes of the competency of SFPD. (And should it be true, we join SFPD in imploring the victim to report the crime.)
UPDATE: The friend of the victim has denied ever talking to the SF Appeal.
