Teen Rape Victim ‘Stable Condition’

SALT LAKE CITY?A 13-year old girl who was raped, stabbed in the neck and left to die at a reservoir was in stable condition Wednesday afternoon at Salt Lake City’s University Hospital.

Detectives from Wasatch County waited at the hospital Wednesday for the girl’s condition to improve so they could interview her.

Salt Lake City Police Sgt. Don Bell said the girl was picked up at the bus stop by a man as she waited for a ride to Hillside Intermediate School Tuesday morning. Friends waiting with her said they believed she knew the male driver.

Bell said police aren’t sure if the driver is the same person who raped and stabbed the girl.
