Woman reports rape, attempts suicide

A 29-year-old Macon woman took several pills in the days after she allegedly was raped by a friend who spent Saturday night with her, according to Macon police.

Police responded to the suicide attempt Monday morning on Scotland Avenue and met with the woman who said she felt dirty and wanted to kill herself, according to a police report.

The woman said she waited until Monday to report the rape because she fell asleep after the incident and that her cousins were afraid of police. She was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia by ambulance, according to the report.
