Alleged Rapist Shot After Attack In Oak Cliff DALLAS (CBS 11 News) ― An alleged rapist was chased and shot after an attack in an Oak Cliff neighborhood on Friday. According to police in Dallas, angry neighbors fought back against the suspect after he violated a woman in her upstairs apartment.
Police said that the man entered the unlocked apartment and displayed a knife. The woman was assaulted and forced into the bedroom where she was raped.
Police also said that five children were in the apartment at the time of the attack. The victim's husband was downstairs working on a car.
"For someone to come in and violate her like that is so wrong," said Amanda Fendell, one of the victim's neighbors. "I mean, that's disturbing."
When the victim came out of her apartment screaming, many nearby neighbors started chasing the suspect. He was shot in the apartment complex and taken to the hospital in critical condition.
"I guess he got what he deserved," Fendell said.
The suspect has been identified as Kedric Roy Lindley. He has a criminal record that includes aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes of violence.
As for the victim, "She's in good condition," said Sr. Cpl. Janice Crowther with the Dallas Police Department. "Of course, she was assaulted. And, of course, everybody knows that in an assault like this, you're going to be devestated. So, in this case, she is definitely devestated. She's not feeling very well, but thank God she's alive."
The five children who were in the apartment at the time of the alleged attack were not injured.
