A pregnant Salt Lake woman told police she was raped by a man who threatened to take her unborn baby if she didn't cooperate.
The 33-year-old woman said she was walking on State Street near 500 South about 4 p.m. Sunday when a man drove up and offered to give her a ride. She accepted but protested when the man drove in a different direction, a police report stated.The man drove her to a parking lot near 375 W. Hope Ave. (1410 South) and demanded sex "or I'll take your baby away from you," she told officers. She said she tried to escape, but he overpowered her and raped her.
Afterward, the woman got out of the car and the suspect tried to back over her with the vehicle. She was later taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where doctors determined that her unborn child was all right.
