Raped In Minneapolis

This is an odd story that hasn't been entirely confirmed, but KARE 11 News reports that a Minneapolis woman has been raped by a man posing as a real estate agent: "Realtors issue warning after woman allegedly raped".

The Minnesota Association of Realtors sent an alert to its members Tuesday after receiving news that someone posing as a Realtor may have raped a woman in Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Police Department says it does not have a police report on the incident.

But the Minnesota Association of Realtors says it learned about the incident from a reliable broker and felt the need to issue an alert to all of its members.

In turn, many other local Realtor groups passed along alerts to their members. An e-mail from the St. Paul Area Association of Realtors says the victim "was approached by a man posing as an agent, asking to preview her home. She allowed him into her home and was... raped."
To say "be on the lookout" would be an understatement.
