(KSNV) Two out of three victims of rape often know their attacker. However, sometimes these attacks come out of the blue. One victim finds the courage to share her story.

Dolores Ramirez has been able to put feelings down on paper after struggling to admit what happened one summer day four years ago, waiting at a bus stop near St. Louis and Eastern.

"I had just turned 16, I was going to summer school," she said. "I noticed he kept trying to talk to me, asking my name, 'How old are you?' you know. It didn't process that he was a rapist."
