Sioux Falls rape victim says attacker is not a stranger

by

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Police say the woman who said she was raped in downtown Sioux Falls early Sunday has changed her story.

     Officer Sam Clemens says the 30 year old woman says she was assaulted but at a different location and she knows her assailant.

     Clemens says rape by a stranger is rare.  He says the vast majority of sexual assaults the victim knows the suspect.  For whatever reason, Clemens says, she didn't give that information to police when she first reported the incident.

     Clemens says invstigators believe the assault occured early Sunday morning when she reported it to authorities at the Law Enforcement Center.             

     Clemens says the investigation still considers the woman a victim of sexual assault.

     He says there’s a lot of work remaining in the investigation.
