At 5:23 a.m. Saturday, a Wauwatosa man called police to report that his wife had just returned home and told him she had been raped by a stranger in a car in the parking lot of , 10842 Blue Mound Rd., during a night of drinking with friends.
The 27-year-old woman, a medical student, had been out with classmates and her husband, and he had left her with them at , 7208 W. State St., about 11 p.m. He told police he thought she was too intoxicated to drive at the time but he entrusted her with her friends.
Her two female friends were then “picked up” by four unknown men, and they all decided to go to Mo’s. The woman said she could not remember what time she got there, what she did or how she ended up in the back of a car with an unknown man, but that he had raped her and bitten her on the lips and breasts.
She thought her assailant had used a condom, and police did recover a used condom in the parking lot, which was collected as possible evidence. The woman said that afterward the man had said he was sorry and offered to drive her wherever she needed to go. She accepted a ride back to her car, which was parked at the apartment of one of her friends.
The woman was able to give only a vague description of her assailant. Police had not yet located and interviewed her friends or other possible witnesses, but they are investigating the incident as a case of first-degree sexual assault.
