A local realtor preparing to show a vacant house in Elkhart was reportedly raped in the basement of that house.
It happened Thursday at a home in the 1500 block of North Olive Street, according to ABC 57.
Elkhart County Board of Realtors President Tom Canarecci says he hasn’t heard of anything like this happening in the community before, and it’s forcing realtors to take safety measures.
“When something like this happens it makes us double down our efforts,” Canarecci told ABC 57’s Sara Rivest. “This is making us take a look at what we’ve done in the past and how we can improve it. We’re going to get together and talk about safety and how we can better implicate the tools and the safety techniques.”
Officials say there aren’t any suspects yet, nor is there a possible description of the rapist.
