A police report reveals a womans purse was stolen after she was assaulted with a gun and locked in an attic for days.

A neighbor who helped rescue the woman, tells 27 News First, his friend alerted him of a woman screaming for help from the attic of an upstairs apartment. After hearing the woman himself, the neighbor says he called the landlord over and they both went in to rescue the victim.

The neighbor says they found the woman badly beat up and only wearing a coat. He says the apartment is occupied but no one was home during the rescue.

Police are still investigating and have not yet identified any suspects.

    You don't just end up in an attic with no one home. This is fishy. What have the police found? Are drugs involved?

    It's sad that people are so uninterested in getting to know their neighbors. If this woman had known her neighbors even a little, they would have noticed her absence and looked for her sooner.
