HIPHOPWIRED is reporting a bizarre case out of Queens, New York. Earlier reported by NYDailyNews a woman was allegedly raped then later texted and called by her attacker in an attempt to get together.
The victim claims that early March of last year, her attacker, Timothy West, 26, gained access to her home via a window and raped her twice at knifepoint while her mother and brother slept upstairs.
After the ordeal the 21-year-old gave West her cell phone number, hoping he would contact her so she could alert the police.
Sure enough, she claims she received a text a few hours later from West that read: “What’s Up girl?”
The attacker then called her and had this conversation that was played for the court room.
The victim asks, “You just broke into my house, yo. I’ve never seen you before …. You try to rob me, then you rape me. Why you did that to me?”
“I do apologize from the bottom of my heart,” he told her.
He then asks: “You mad at me?… I can’t call you no more?”
“What made you want to come in and break into my house? Why out of all the houses, why my house?” she questions.
“It was just random,” he replied.
“Can I come see you?” he asked.
The woman then agreed to meet the man at a location where she was waiting with the police who promptly arrested West.
The defense claims that the sex was consensual, pointing out that the victim never screamed out to alert her family members.
The court case is ongoing.
