— Authorities in Searcy are looking for a man who stabbed a woman and then raped her 12-year-old daughter before fleeing the scene.

Brittany Eacret, spokesman for the Searcy Police Department, said it happened about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at an apartment at 2001 Quality Drive.

Eacret said the mother was stabbed multiple times, including at least once in the neck, and has been hospitalized with injuries that may be life-threatening.

Police say the mother was attempting to stop the man from raping her 12-year-old daughter when he attacked her. He then raped the girl and fled on foot, police said.

The mother and the girl then went to a neighbor's residence to call for help.

Eacret said the mother had just met the man, but that he had been invited into the residence before the attack occurred.

Eacret said police have identified a "person of interest" and were working Wednesday to find him. She declined to release his name or the names of the victims.

No arrests have been made. The case remains under investigation, Eacret said.

"Eacret said the mother had just met the man, but that he had been invited into the residence before the attack occurred."

Really, in this day and age? I am a guy and I would have trouble having a new stranger over.

Would this qualify as a ligitimate rape since the guy was invited into the residence, or should we ask the counsel of Todd Akin. if she becomes pregnate will this be GOD's will.
Just asking.

I would hope the person responsibile is apprehended quickly. It would appear this lady made a serious error in judgement. The penalty for conviction of such a crime should be the death penalty. Anyone who would commit such a crime doesn't deserve to live.

If that was my daughter, he'd better pray to God that the police found him first. I'm just sayin'...

They should let the mother and daughter flip the switch (if they so desired).
