A Chattanooga man was arrested after police say he attacked and raped a woman early Wednesday morning.
The victim told police the attack came from 53-year-old Willie James Bradley, a man she had only met that night. Police said she had severe lacerations and contusions on her face and head when they first saw her.
The woman said she had been with a male friend when they stopped at the Kanku's on Wilcox Boulevard. She told Investigator Andrew Peker that while there, her friend picked up Bradley, who he only knew as "Doc."
She said that while the three of them were in the truck driving, she told the others she needed to use a restroom.
She said Bradley told her he knew a place where they could stop.
According to police, they pulled over at a vacant house on Milne Street and Bradley escorted the woman inside.
Once she was trapped in the house with Bradley, police said he began to attack her. She said he grabbed her hair and became increasingly violent as she tried to resist.
The woman said he raped her and then fled.
When police arrived, the woman was immediately taken to Erlanger Hospital for her injuries. When describing her assailant to police, she said he had a "messed up eye" that looked the wrong way.
She identified Bradley out of a lineup.
Bradley was arrested later that afternoon and charged with multiple counts of aggravated rape as well as false imprisonment. His bond totaled at $600,000.
