Memphis Police are investigating an alleged kidnapping, torture and rape of a woman who ran from a Willow Avenue home naked and handcuffed early Monday morning.

Police were dispatched to the 4500 block of Willow, located between White Station and Mendenhall in East Memphis just before 5 a.m., after getting a call from a woman who reported a sexual assault.

The unidentified woman escaped from the home naked and handcuffed and ran down the street banging on doors begging for help.

Twelve police cars surrounded the house within minutes and officers found one man inside, but he claimed he was only a roommate at the home. Another unidentified man has left before police arrived.

The woman was taken to the Shelby County Rape Crisis Center. The roommate who was at the home at the time of the alleged attack was questioned by police for several hours.

Neighbors who live near the home said they like to know who their neighbors are and have tried to communicate with them in the past.

"Yes, I have and I tried to communicate with them because I try to be kind to the community, try to get to know the community because I patrol the area and watch out every time I go out," said Pedro Kennedy. "I change my schedule, that's how I know when the come and go. I like to know exactly who they are and get familiar with them that way we we'll be okay. I'm happy about it and at peace. These guys did not want to talk, did not want to communicate, not at all."

The incident remains under investigation.

If you can assist police you are urged to call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH.
