Detroit, MI-A group of fed up Detroiters hit the streets by the numbers in efforts to track down a rapist that took full advantage of a 90 year-old woman. Neighbors were devastated to learn that the 90 year-old woman was raped inside her home. It was the woman’s grandson who found her and he spoke with Fox2 News in Detroit to share his thoughts of the attack, and about how neighbors are getting involved to catch whomever is responsible for the heinous crime.
"It just gives me joy. I've been feeling so much rage since Friday when I found her," said Gordon Mosley.
Mosley, arrived at the home Friday and discovered his grandmother after two men broke into her home on Leslie and raped her. Word of such a horrendous crime spread fast throughout the west side neighborhood where a group of Detroit residents has now decided to fight back. When asked, the neighbors all agreed that they must come together and make their presence known by scouring the area of the attack on foot. This attack on the elderly woman is only one of several attacks against the elderly in Detroit. Earlier in the year on Detroit’s east-side a 84 year-old woman was attacked by a perpetrator as she walked home from the store. A man assaulted the woman, then he tried taking her clothing off, but was startled by a witness. He has yet to be captured.
If you have any information that leads to his arrest, you could be eligible for a $1000 reward by calling 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
