Woman assaulted by man met on internet

09/08/2017 - A Rochester Hills woman was attacked late Friday, September 1, and sexually assaulted at her home by a man she met on a social media website, authorities said.

Oakland County sheriff's deputies responded about 4 a.m. to Troy Beaumont Hospital for the report of a sexual assault victim who was being treated in the emergency room. The 31-year-old victim told deputies she met a man on a social media website and arranged to have to have him pick her up from her home so they could see a late night movie.

The victim told deputies the man arrived and was invited inside her home at the Village Green Apartments on Village Green Boulevard off Dequindre Road. She said they had a brief conversation before the man physically attacked her and sexually assaulted her.

The man was described only as a white male, about 37 years old and standing between 6-feet, 3inches and 6-feet 5-inches tall.

Deputies and evidence technicians went to the victim's residence and processed the scene. Detectives are working with the victim to identify the assailant.

The incident remains under investigation.
