She left the hospital and claims a man, known only as JMG and known to her, offered to give her a lift home but during the journey said he had to stop off and pick up a few things. She claimed he had gained her trust by this stage and invited her in but after the front door was closed he hit her to the point of unconsciousness.

She said she eventually regained consciousness, but woke with a chain around her neck, held by the man as he made a bid to strangle her. During this, reports claim he was insulting her.

To prevent her from fighting back he allegedly cuffed her hands. In the police report it appears that despite JMG’s efforts, the woman managed to get free and make a break for it through a window while he was distracted. From there she went to relatives and then on to the hospital.
