Police investigate possible rape

Sunnyside Police Department detectives are investigating a reported rape that a 40-year-old Sunnyside woman called in Tuesday morning, Dec. 7.

Police were called to Sunnyside Community Hospital to investigate a suspected rape, according to Det. Sgt. Joe Guillen.

The victim was apparently at a friend's house when the crime allegedly took place. Upon further investigation, Guillen said the woman was not close friends to the person living at the home. The suspect, who is described as a 26 to 27-year-old male, arrived at the house after the victim.

Guillen said that drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the alleged rape.

"We're trying to identify the suspect," he said. "We're having to go the round-about way. The friend does not want to be known because of other legal problems."

Guillen said they aren't even sure exactly were the rape occurred.

He believes it was in a house on 13th Street.
