Alleged rape victim details week of hell

She met Victor Hursh through mutual friends, she says, and went to his house to meet up and go out to see a band. She says he offered her some water and the next thing she knew she passed out.

"He threatened to kill me and my family if I was to talk," said a woman whose identity we've agreed not to reveal.

She's out of focus to protect her identity, but crystal clear about the details of what she says she endured at the hands of Victor Hursh.

"Beat me, strangled me, held a knife and a gun, played Russian roulette," she said.

She met him through mutual friends, she says, and went to his house to meet up and go out to see a band. She says he offered her some water and the next thing she knew she passed out.

"I woke up and I was in restraints. Hands, feet, and a collar around my neck. I asked him what's going on and he told me, 'I'm the devil, I've done this to many other girls, you're going to do what I say or I'm going to beat you,'" she says.

Over the next six days, she says, she was repeatedly sexually assaulted, injected with meth, and threatened in a variety of ways.

"And showed videos and stuff of other girls that he had done it too, and he told me he had killed others. He showed me bleach and ammonia he had injected in some, he said," she said.

Finally, she says, she found an opportunity to escape and ran for her life. She waited six months before filing a police report for fear of reprisal. But her report got little traction from TPD.

"I don't know if they dropped the ball, I just think that this day and age it's hard if you're a survivor of such a crime to prove it," she said.

She's since been contacted by detectives to hear her story again she says, and hopeful that Hursh will soon face charges for what she says he did to her. In the meantime, she's speaking out for one reason only.

"To help other victims out there to come forward," she said.
