Woman in wheelchair assaulted


PARK CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Police are trying to find a man who assaulted a woman in a wheelchair in July.On July 11th, the wheelchair bound 25-year-old woman from the Salt Lake Valley was at a club on Main Street with some friends. She met a man there and at 2:00 in the morning, they left the club on Main Street together. He was apparently escorting her back to her hotel. They left Main Street and entered the Poison Creek Path. When he came across a grassy patch he threw her onto the ground and sexually assaulted her.

The woman must have passed out because she remembered nothing until the sprinklers came on around 4:00 am. She struggled into her wheel chair and went back up the trail to call for help.Her description of the attacker was only that he was about her age, tall and fit with curly brown hair and an accent. It wasn’t Italian or Spanish, but she called it a European accent.Captain Nick Ryan said, "He is a predator - a particularly dangerous predator to commit this type of crime."

Captain Ryan said the victim remembered little about the night, perhaps because of the trauma or perhaps because she was slipped a drug in a drink."She has a time period where she just does not recall,” Ryan said. “Some of the events of the night which would be consistent with the possibility of being drugged."So far Captain Ryan said all their leads have run into dead ends. Anyone who can help catch this predator is asked to call the Park City Police Department 435-615-5500.
