The mother of a 22-year-old woman who was raped outside a house in North Baltimore early Saturday called with additional details of the horrific attack. Some information was incomplete in the initial police report.
The woman had left Mad River Bar on South Charles Street in Federal Hill but told police she had blacked out and couldn't recall anything until she was attacked in the Lake Evesham neighborhood nearly seven miles away.
The victim's mother, whom we are not identifying to shield the name of the young woman, said her daughter worked at Mad River, and had not been out drinking with friends, as the first report seemed to suggest.
A Baltimore police spokesman on Thursday confirmed that the victim did work at the bar, but he said she finished her shift and stayed to have a few drinks with friends. The victim's mother said she believes her daughter was drugged.
Police also had said the woman was found about 3 a.m. face down in a yard of a house in the 6000 block of Pinehurst Road, near Lake Avenue. The mother said she awoke during or right after her attack, escaped and ran naked through bramble and woods and banged on the door of a house, The occupants took her in and called police.
The mother said her daughter's wallet and car keys were found nearby, and her car was parked a distance away. Her cell phone is missing, the mother said.
