MACY'S STAFFER GIVES ACCOUNT OF RAPE ORDEAL
New York Daily News, February 23, 1998

She cried for help, but it never came.

As a rapist pummeled her with his fists and choked her in a seventh-floor stockroom of Macy's 34th St. flagship store Jan. 16, the 49-year-old woman said, she thought she was going to die.

"All I know is no one came to my rescue," she told the Daily News.

The part-time worker spoke out about her horrifying ordeal for the first time last week.

Macy's has offered a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the rapist.

The victim, a married mother of two, is on leave from the company and is in counseling, said her attorney, Madeline Bryer.

The victim recounted the attack with a mixture of dread and anger.

It occurred about 7 p.m. as she was on a break and searching the stock area for a robe she wanted.

She said she noticed the man as she walked into the secluded area, assuming he was another worker.

When he grabbed her from behind, she was stunned.

"He was choking me," she said. "He was real strong. He was telling me something like to shut up. When he turned me around, I started screaming. He kept saying no one is going to hear you, and if I kept screaming he was going to kill me."

The man did not display a weapon, and though he punched and choked her, she said she continued screaming for help. "It was right next to where people could hear me. All I know is no one came to my rescue."

As the attack continued, she said, "I was afraid I was going to die because no one was coming. I kept on telling him I have a little boy. I was praying."

The assault finally ended after she stabbed the rapist in the face several times with the pin of her nametag.

The victim has filed a $10 million negligence suit against her employer, charging that Macy's failed to maintain a safe work place.

Bryer argues in the suit that there was no "access control" to the stockroom and that the door to the area was not kept locked.

The company declined to comment on the specifics of the lawsuit.

Anyone with information about the attack is urged to call police at CrimeStoppers, (800) 577-TIPS.
