The victim left her work at 9 p.m. and didn’t immediately return home.
Relatives began looking for the victim and found her getting sexually assaulted. After finding her car in a parking lot, they saw a man run away from the scene heading towards a backyard of a home on Jackson Street.
The relatives called 911 and the victim was hurt so badly she was unable to speak to officers. She was transported to Aurora Lakeland Medical Center for her injuries.
Alisha Haupt and her two small children got ice cream last night around the time of the assault just a few businesses away and never noticed anything.
“We were literally right around this area so that’s scary,” said Haupt. “It does not happen out here. I’m flabbergasted right now.”
It has Haupt and others in Elkhorn saying they will be taking precautions until the man is caught.
“I am just not going to come out after dark with my kids anymore until he is caught,” said Haupt.
