Indiana Agent Attacked at Showing Appointment

December 6, 2012

Police are on the hunt for two men in Northwest Indiana who lured a real estate agent to a phony showing appointment. The men allegedly posed as prospective clients and then sexually assaulted the real estate agent inside the home, according to police. 

The real estate agent scheduled a daytime appointment to show the two prospective clients a home in Hammond, Ind., meeting the two men at the residence.  

“Upon entering the house, the REALTOR®-victim was sexually assaulted inside the home,” says Police Lt. Richard Hoyda. The Hispanic men were described in their late 40s and the other in his 20s or early 30s.

Police have released a sketch of one of the alleged attackers and are encouraging residents in the community to step forward with any more details.
