GIRL, 8, RAPED IN DAYLIGHT ATTACK NEAR FLORIDA HOME
An 8-year-old girl was raped by a brazen fiend in broad daylight on the side of a residential street less than half a block from her apartment. The girl and her 7-year-old brother were leaving a park at about 12:55 p.m. Wednesday when a man grabbed her from behind and raped her. A man playing basketball nearby said he heard the screams and ran to the scene while a motorist who saw the attack began honking her horn and dialed 911. The rapist ran away leaving his shirt behind. Police were questioning a 19-year-old man in the attack.
