The attack happened in the Woodrun neighborhood near Reno and Czech Hall.

"I thought my quiet little neighborhood has just gone to heck," Vicky Norris said.

Norris said she was surprised to hear about the attack on one of her neighbors.

Oklahoma City Police warned the neighbors an Indian or Hispanic man matching a composite sketch raped a mother when she took out the trash on the evening of July 16.

The victim told police her attacker likely came out of a wooded area between her house and the neighbors. The suspect hit her in the back of the head, forced her to the ground, and raped her until the victim's son walked out holding a pellet gun.

The child yelled "mom!" and the suspect ran away.

Neighbors are now looking for the suspect lurking around their home. They are also adding extra securities to their homes.

Norris is keeping her doors locked and added more light around her house.

"I put my big light in over here and I've got big watt light bulbs to brighten up my whole front yard cause I don't want anyone to be hiding behind something I can't see," Norris said.

Oklahoma City Police say if you have any information in this case, call crime stoppers at (405)-235-7300.
