Rape Victim Spots Attacker in Restaurant
Oklahoma City police say a rape victim being interviewed by an officer at a restaurant was able to see the suspect arrested when he walked through the door.
The victim told police she was attacked Tuesday at the Union Bus Station when she was trying to enter a restroom. She fled to a nearby restaurant and waited for police.
The Oklahoman reports (http://is.gd/QKP8Ud ) that the officer and victim sat in the dining room to talk when 48-year-old Robert M. Mcneal walked through the door.
The police report says the woman started to panic when she saw Mcneal and the officer confronted him. When police searched Mcneal, they found the victim's bus ticket in one of his socks.
Officials say Mcneal is a registered sex offender from Illinois.
