On Dec. 12, police said they responded to a report of a partially clothed female who was running down Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard asking for help.
The victim told the responding officer that she had been drugged and raped.
Detectives said they are trying to identify the suspects who the victim told police are members of an Atlanta rap group called the Hood Rich Clikk.
“We are actively investigating this case as a rape,” said Lt. Janet Brady, with APD’s Special Victim’s Unit.
The victim, who we will call “Mary” spoke exclusively to CBS reporter Tony McNary.
“I just darted out of the apartment. I grabbed one of their shirts to try to put on because I was naked and I ran out of the apartment. I could still hear him running behind me.”
Mary said one of men took her to the Apex Apartments on Huff Road after they raped her at a recording studio.
“I kept trying to force him off of me, then another guy started having sex with me and another guy. I remember I kept saying, ‘Stop!’ I was too weak to fight. I remember being laughed at. I remember my lips felt funny but I didn’t know what was going on. I didn’t know that they had swollen up,” she said.
Police released two pictures of the men they are trying to identify. The men, police said, are associated with the HRC.
If you know the names of members of the group, call Atlanta Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477).
