Surprised by a stranger in the underground car park of her residence, a 24-year-old woman was assaulted and raped during the night from Monday to Tuesday in Courbevoie (Hauts-de-Seine).
It is 10:45 p.m. on rue d'Espagne, when the young woman parks her car while the premises are deserted.
She is walking towards the elevator when a stranger comes up and grabs her.
The man is much stronger.
He gags her and ties her up with duct tape before pushing her towards his car.
In front of the vehicle, he brandishes a screwdriver and begins to search it with the intention of seizing the keys to steal the car.
"He got his hands on a bank card and then demanded that she give him the secret code," said a source close to the case.
The young woman, paralyzed, reveals the precious sesame to him.
Forgetting his initial plan, the thief decides to push her towards a water flow pipe.
In this sordid corner, he undresses her before abusing her.

She was taken to the forensic emergency room in Garches to undergo examinations.
Officials of the scientific police take biological samples from the victim's belongings and from the scene of the incident.
Thanks to the summary report, collected on the spot, several crews from the anti-crime brigade crisscross the sector to try to get their hands on the suspect.
The Nanterre prosecutor's office has opened a rape investigation.
