Lawncrest woman raped, abandoned in Fairmount Park

UPDATE — CORRECTION

A 28-year-old Lawncrest woman was found partially naked yesterday afternoon in Fairmount Park, following an abduction she says took place the night before.

The woman told police she was taken by a man Monday night near her house, was driven to an unknown house where she was raped, and then taken to Belmont Plateau Tuesday afternoon.

She was discovered by a passerby about an hour later.

The Inquirer reports the attack does not seem related to previous assaults in Pennypack and Fairmount parks.
