The Cape Charles Police Department and the Northampton Sheriff's Department are both investigating an alleged rape on the beach front at Cape Charles last week. A 20 year old woman told authorities she was walking on the beach at approximately 6:30 PM when she was approached by a man who talked to her for a few minutes before supposedly moving on. She said the man quickly returned and attacked her.
Chief Charles Brown of the Cape Charles police said nothing like this has happened before and his department is trying to piece together the story pending the return of forensic lab results. The suspect is believed to be between 25 and 30 years old.
Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the Cape Charles Police Department at 757-331-3096.
