    A girl with special needs was abducted and raped by a stranger who snatched her as she played in her garden. The girl, whose age has not been given, but who was described as a juvenile, was taken from outside her home in Bluefield, West Virginia, on Saturday night before being violently assaulted.

    Detective Sergeant Kenny Adams from Bluefield Police Department said: ‘The victim was playing in her backyard. She was grabbed, dragged behind a building and violently raped.’

    After the attack, the rapist left the victim, who was able to sound the alarm about what had happened to her, the Bluefield Daily Telegraph reported.

    Sergeant Adams said the victim was unable to provide a possible age for the suspect, but the girl said she believed he may have been accompanied by another person, with that accomplice possibly a child themselves.

    Police think the rapist may have sustained a bite mark on his arm as his victim tried to defend himself. They have since obtained some evidence, and are now trying to track down security camera footage from the local area in a bid to identify and arrest him.
