On this episode of Global News podcast Crime Beat, crime reporter Nancy Hixt shares the devastating impact of a sexual predator.
In 2003, a young Calgary woman was in her own home, when a stranger broke in and attacked her.
She was bound, raped, beaten and threatened.
Six months later, it happened again.
A second woman, sexually assaulted in her own home, just blocks from where the first woman was attacked.
The details were so similar — both women were sexually assaulted in their own homes by a violent stranger.
