Woman reports rape in Chapel Hill
CHAPEL HILL – A woman reported on Friday that she was raped the previous Saturday night in a house on Creel Street.
The woman, who was about 50 years old, told police she was at a residence in the neighborhood located off South Merritt Mill Road on the evening of April 13 when she was raped. She reported the incident last Friday morning, said Sgt. Josh Mecimore of the Chapel Hill Police Department.
The rape did not appear to be a random incident and did not involve someone breaking into the home or jumping out of the bushes, although it was unclear if the woman was acquainted with the man before the incident, Mecimore said.
