Salt Lake police detectives pursued several leads Friday in the rape of a woman who was attacked at her apartment early Thursday.
The woman, 23, was entering her front door, shortly after 2 a.m. in the Ninth East block of Harvard Avenue, when two men came running at her.One of the men made it inside her apartment before she could shut the door, said sex crimes detective Pat Smith. The other man remained outside.
The assailant beat the victim about the head and raped her. "Every time she tried to fight him, he beat her in the head," Smith said.
