West Chester police investigate report of woman raped by intruder with her 19-month-old in apartment

911 call in West Chester rape released

WEST CHESTER TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - Police are investigating after a West Chester Township woman reported being raped in her apartment by an intruder, a West Chester Township spokesperson confirmed Tuesday.

The woman says her toddler was in the apartment, located on Princeton Square Circle, during the rape.

No arrests have been made while police continue to investigate, according to the township spokesperson, Barb Wilson.

The woman does not know the person who raped her, a police incident report shows.

“It is extremely rare for there to be a rape in West Chester in which the offender is not in some way known to the victim," Wilson wrote in an email to FOX19 NOW.

The woman’s husband called 911 sometime shortly before 12:45 a.m. Saturday morning, according to a recording of the call released by West Chester police.

The woman can be heard crying in the background during the call.

A translator had to be used by authorities to understand the couple due to the language barrier.

“My wife told me this person hit her,” the husband told the dispatcher, according to the recording.

Wilson confirmed the offender entered through an unlocked window on the first floor and punched the woman. No weapon was shown.

“Did they hit or touch the baby?” The dispatcher asked.

“No,” the husband replied, “not the baby, only my wife.”

Investigators are continuing to work with the victim to learn more about the offender, Wilson said Tuesday.

“When there is more information/description available to release to the public that may help in the investigation, we will release that information," she said.
