An African refugee in Rockville, Maryland walked into a women’s apartment, approached her while she was cooking, and then attempted to rape her. Luckily she had the wherewithal to defend herself and escaped.
On Monday, January 16, Ishetu snuck into the Congressional Towers apartment building, located along the 200 block of Congressional Lane. The seven-story building, which requires key fob access, is home to dozens of families in a predominantly Asian section of Rockville.
According to police, Ishetu walked through the lobby, rode an elevator to floor two and then entered an unlocked unit.
A 36-year-old woman cooking in the kitchen heard a noise.
When she turned around, she saw Ishetu with his finger over his lips, telling the woman to remain quiet.
Police say Ishetu attempted to cover the woman’s mouth, rip off her shirt and drag her to the bedroom. However, the five-foot-six, 150 pound, attacker’s plans were foiled when the victim bit his palm, started to scream and escaped into the hallway.
Fearful of being caught, Ishetu ran away, escaping down an elevator – coincidentally passing the victim’s husband and young child who had been playing outside at the time of the random attack.
Patrol officers caught Ishetu nearby. During an interview with a detective, the 31-year-old waived his rights and admitted to the entire incident: entering the unit at random, locking the door behind him, checking to ensure the woman was alone, and then attacking the woman, pinning her body down by the arms.
When asked why he did such a terrible thing, Ishetu allegedly told officers that he “needed sex” and was, “trying to get some.” He also shared that he “didn’t want to hurt” the victim, but rather “just rape her.”
Do we need any more evidence that a ban on refugees should be in place?
Forget about terrorism for a moment and understand that the culture that most of these foreigners come from do not respect women and see them as property. We are putting our women at risk by shipping more and more of these individuals to our shores. It needs to stop.
