Rape of teenage girl reported to police

A 15-year-old girl on her way to school last week was grabbed, pulled into a vehicle, punched into unconsciousness and raped, she and her mother told Buffalo police.

The girl was on her way to catch the bus to a city school Thursday when abducted at Edison and East Delavan avenues, she told officers. She said she remembered little about the attack but described the car as an older red vehicle with four doors, and that two men were involved.

Her mother said the girl awakened hours later somewhere on Eggert Road and called her father from the home of a person she met. They called police to report an abduction but did not initially report the rape because the girl did not recall all that occurred.

Her mother later saw the girl’s damaged undergarments and surmised she had been raped. Her mother said the girl was examined at St. Joseph Hospital, but she has not yet been told of the results. The girl was released Saturday from Children’s Hospital, her mother said.
