A motorist on I-85 called Gwinnett County Police in the early morning hours of Nov. 4 after noticing an unusual site on the exit ramp to Hamilton Mill Parkway -- a pantless woman.
When police arrived, they found the 52-year-old woman wearing a blue shirt, but no pants. One of the officers noticed the woman was standing on a pair of jeans and asked her to put on her pants. The woman said she had no pants. When the officer asked whose pants she was standing on, the woman said she did not know. She did, however, put the pants on and “seemed surprised that her keys were inside the front pocket.”
The investigating officer noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from the woman and noted that she was “hysterical” and difficult to calm. After several attempts, the officer was able to obtain the woman’s name and get a partial account of what led the woman to be pantless alongside the interstate.
The woman told police she was at a bar and got a ride home from people she met there. Those people, the woman said, tried to rape her in the car. The woman said they were unsuccessful, but had grabbed at her and had thrown her out of the car while it was in motion when she resisted. The woman had no injuries and indicated she did not need to go to the hospital.
After approximately 15 minutes of questions, the woman was finally able to provide officers with a general idea of where she lived. One of the officers drove her to the approximate location in Duluth and the woman was then able to direct him to her residence. Once at her home, the officer again tried to determine what had transpired.
The woman reportedly told the officer she had begun drinking at 3 p.m. that day. She could not remember which bar initially, but, by the end of the conversation with the officer, had recalled it was Barnacles in Duluth. While at the bar, the woman said she was drinking with four males and left the bar with them after they said they would give her a ride home. The woman did not know the names of the men, nor could she provide a vehicle description.
The woman indicated that once they were in the car, the males started to grope her. She could not explain how her pants and bra came off and was, according to the police report, “still very intoxicated.”
The officer provided the woman with a case number and advised her to call if she remembered any further details from the evening.
