The quick thinking of a rape victim, who was subjected to a horrifying abduction and sexual assault, helped police catch her attacker.
Robert Giles, 27, attacked the victim in the back of an adult entertainment store in Clayton County, Georgia on Monday, after reportedly kidnapping her from Hapeville in the early hours of the morning.
According to Channel 2 Action News, Giles then harrowingly told his victim to call her boyfriend on her phone so he could listen to her being raped.
However, despite her awful ordeal, the victim had the brilliant idea to instead call 911. Her quick thinking, coupled with the savvy 911 operator playing along with the ruse while he sent police to the location, meant the cops quickly arrived on the scene and arrested Giles in the act.
Clayton County police Maj. Joe Woodall said:
It was quick thinking on [the operator’s] behalf. In fact, it might have saved her life. She explained to him what the perpetrator had told her; that he was wanting him to listen while she was being raped. They were able to stop it right then and there and snatched him right from the car.Advertisement
Giles now faces rape, false imprisonment and obstruction charges. Hapeville police are also reportedly preparing kidnapping charges against Giles.
