This horrific story sent chills up my spine. An 18-year-old woman in Los Angeles was sexually assaulted for 10 minutes while riding a metro bus. The young woman was described as having the mental capacity of a 10-year-old and her attack went unnoticed by the bus driver.

The rape occurred in the rear of a nearly empty 217 bus on Wednesday evening, but the attacker managed to escape before the bus driver was made aware of anything. The man reportedly got off the bus at the last stop and managed to flee. The image here was released by police of the alleged attacker.  How awful!

This story really made me sick to my stomach because this was something that occurred PUBLICLY. Generally when you think of rape, you assume it occurs in a secluded area or even indoors, but this man committed it in the open! I know Los Angeles is a city where people mostly drive, but it's shocking to think that taking public transportation is by no means safe. It's plain absurd!

According to the Los Angeles Times, the rapist is described as a black male, 18 to 20 years of age, and the only person who was aware of the attack was a solo unknown witness.

Wow, 10 minutes is a LONG time for something like this to go unnoticed. Reportedly, the one lone witness tried alerting the bus driver, but by the time the driver realzed what was happening, the attacker had left.

I feel awful for this defenseless woman. Anyone willing to take advantage of someone in that state, deserves the worst punishment. It's scary to think that criminals have no limits and aren't ashamed to take their actions this far. I hope this man is caught and given the worst punishment possible for being such a callous attacker.
