College student kidnapped and raped in broad daylight... and the suspect remains on the loose - 26th July 2011

A 19-year-old college student was kidnapped and raped in broad daylight in Moses Lake, Washington, say authorities.

The victim told police that she had been walking to her car at approximately 10am when she was confronted by a man armed with a knife.

The man allegedly forced the teen into her car and drove to a bank, where he attempted to withdraw money using her debit card. He then drove to a recreation area, where he raped her.

The vehicle became stuck in the sand, and the suspect fled the scene. Authorities say he may have received a lift from an unsuspecting motorist.

The victim went to the Washington State Patrol office, where she was assisted by authorities and taken to a hospital for treatment.

The suspect is a white male with possible Hispanic ethnicity, brown hair, medium build, with a dark moustache and goatee, according to police. He has tattoos on each forearm, but the victim was not certain what the tattoos were.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities. Source
