He raped her and then left her there.The victim returned home and contacted a neighbor because her parents weren't there. The neighbor called the police, who transported the girl to Orem Community Hospital and then to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. She was tested, treated and released from the hospital that night.
