Woman reports being raped

HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- A Burbank woman was allegedly raped by an

acquaintance, but police released very few details about the incident

because it is still under investigation.


The alleged sexual assault occurred Tuesday night inside a home in

the Hillside District area. Police would not disclose the location or

circumstances of the attack.

Police officials, however, did say the woman knew the man who


attacked her. The woman went to the police station late Tuesday night

to report the incident, police said.

As of late Friday, no arrests had been made, police said.
