COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A man was sentenced four years to prison and 10 years of sex offender intensive supervised probation for trying to sexually assault an Uber driver in Colorado Springs.
Left: Victim. Right: Suspect.
The crime happened Sept. 10. Raydrian Scott, 22, was arrested two days later. He was still in possession of the victim's vehicle at the time of the arrest.
Loraine, whose last name we're withholding for her protection, told 11 News she was brutally beaten during the attack.
“He got my lip/he bashed me in the mouth/this tooth is shoved up in and twisted/he split the skin like a boxer/everyone tells me my ear is really swollen," Lorraine said as she showed us her wounds.
Lorraine told 11 News reporter Alyssa Chin, “it looks worse than it feels.”
"I think at first, the first assault was intended to be a rape -- because he got real personal and I’m going to leave it at that," Lorraine said.
The attacker even bit her. She has five to six stitches near her right eye. She was in the hospital for more than seven hours after the attack that had her fighting back. She wouldn't give in.
"The cops told me that's the reason I got away alive," Lorraine recalled.
It was 4 a.m. when the man called for the Uber on Dale Street near downtown Colorado Springs.
He told her they couldn't leave because they were waiting for his brother.
"We waited almost 10 minutes; his brother never showed and I said, 'Look, we either need to get going or you need to cancel and get another Uber.’ He said, 'There's my brother,' and I turned to look -- that's when he hit me for the first time," Lorraine said.
Judge Gregory Werner concurred Wednesday that the circumstances in the case were quite violent.
At the time he assaulted the Uber driver in September, Scott was wanted for failing to register as a sex offender.
Scott was also sentenced on robbery charges in the same case. The sentences for the robbery and sex assault will be served consecutively.
