The Salisbury Police are investigating the rape and beating of a woman who walked four miles with a broken neck and other broken bones.
The Post does not identify victims of sexual assault.
A 35-year-old Salisbury woman told police she had been playing cards and drinking at a friend’s house Friday.
She left the friend’s Long Street home to buy cigarettes. She said she was jumped by two males who beat and raped her. She was knocked unconscious.
A couple found the woman naked near Kerr Street along the railroad tracks. They took her to a home off Third Street in Spencer.
They cleaned her up and gave her clothes to wear. She left the home and walked four miles to a Kangaroo convenience store in Spencer, at the corner of Third Street and Salisbury Avenue, a report said.
A clerk at the convenience store called emergency officials. Spencer Police were called and later, Salisbury Police when it was discovered the initial incident occurred in Salisbury. Spencer Fire Department and Rowan EMS also responded.
Rowan Regional Medical Center doctors said the woman had a broken neck, broken cheekbone and cracked ribs.
