On March 18, police in North Bend, Wash. arrested a suspect in the March 9 kidnapping, stabbing, and rape of a female employee who was alone at work and closing up her place of employment, Jay Berry’s Gourmet Pizza, around 11 p.m.

According to KOMO, the unidentified victim, a woman in her 30s, was leaving the shop via the rear door that night when a man waiting outside forced her back into the restaurant, stabbed her, tied her up with duct tape, and then brutally raped her.

Police stepped up their patrol presence in the area of the assault, especially at night, and arrested a “41-year-old North Bend man” as a result of their investigation into the brutal attack.

The unidentified suspect was booked into King County Jail on Tuesday night.

Police say that although seriously injured, the victim “somehow freed herself to call 911 and tell officers what happened to her.”

The female victim is still recovering from her attack.

Her friends and employers at Jay Berrys Café have set up a gofundme account to collect donations for the victim.
