Tacoma woman claims rape by armed man in uniform


A Tacoma woman says she was raped by someone who appeared to be a police officer or a security guard after getting pulled over while driving in South Tacoma on Saturday.

The 31-year-old woman said she was pulled over for a traffic stop near the Tacoma Mall some time between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. by a man who was wearing a uniform and carrying a gun.

The man was driving a silver, gray or white vehicle with a light in the window, the victim said.

The woman told detectives the man held her in the car for up to 9 hours and raped her.

On Sunday morning police interviewed the victim at Tacoma General Hospital where exams showed the probability of sexual activity having taken place. Doctors have not yet determined whether the woman had been raped, detectives said.
Police have no suspects in the case, and the investigation is ongoing.
