Martinez woman reports being raped
A Martinez woman told police that a man raped and abducted her at gunpoint after she stopped her vehicle at a Martinez intersection.
As the 21-year-old was responding to a text message while stopped at Stevens Creek and Evans to Locks roads, a man wearing a ski mask approached her car window, which was partly rolled down, about 8 p.m. He pointed a handgun at her and demanded she unlock the door, according to an incident report e-mailed from Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris.
After the driver unlocked her doors, the gunman got into the back seat and told her to drive to a dead end on Stevens Creek Road.
After they got to the road, he took her credit cards and ordered her out of the car. He pushed her into woods and raped her, she told police. He then threw her car keys into the woods and ran away.
She left her vehicle, ran home and called police.
The assailant was described only as white, 6 foot 1 and about 230 pounds. He was wearing a ski mask, black gloves and blue jeans.
The following accounts were taken from reports from the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. Additional reports are available at www.columbiacountyso.org:
