Woman raped in deserted airport concourse while two janitors walked by and did nothing. Another sad example of why you can’t expect anyone to come to your rescue if attacked.
A woman who missed a connecting flight at Denver International Airport said she was raped in a deserted concourse by a man she met at an airport bistro while 2 janitors passed by and did nothing.
Officers arrested Noel Alexander Bertrand, 26, of Portland, Oregon., early Tuesday after two airline employees on the tarmac saw the attack through a window and called for help. Denver television stations KMGH and KDVR reported.
The 22 -year-old woman said she was flying from Oregon to Illinois on Monday to interview at a convent and decided to spend the night at the airport when she struck up a conversation with the man.
The woman said Bertrand followed her after the bistro closed at midnight. He asked to kiss her, and she refused, but he moved in anyway and then threw her to the floor. The woman said the man pulled her pants down and assaulted her for about 10 minutes. During the attack, two airport janitors passed by and said nothing, she said.
It’s dis-hearting that two airport janitors could just walk by while a woman inside the airport is being sexually assaulted. These are dangerous times, the only person you can expect to rescue you if being attacked and sexually assaulted is YOU!
Crime Is Real, Don’t Be a Victim!
