Woman Allegedly Raped at Denver International Airport Concourse
A 22-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a 26-year-old man from Portland, Oregon in a deserted area of a concourse at Denver International Airport. The sexual assault reportedly occurred even as two janitors passed by the scene and did nothing to help the victim. The man, a former Marine, had already been screened at the airport security checkpoint.
Comments on the irony regarding how the mere presence of Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, officers could have helped to prevent the incident of a Woman Raped in Deserted Denver Airport Concourse have been posted by some FlyerTalk members who expressed shock and disgust. Other FlyerTalk members argue that law enforcement officers, not Transportation Security Administration officers, had the primary responsibility of ensuring the safety of the woman once beyond the airport security checkpoint.
