A 45 year old Occupy Member was raped and thrown off of a 20 foot railing near the South Street Seaport on Monday.

The woman fell on concrete and broke her femur and pelvis in the fall. She is reportedly in serious condition. She reported to police she had been sexually assaulted and then thrown from the railing.
She apparently knew her attacker, but it is unclear at this point whether the attacker is also with Occupy.  She says the attacker was a a black man who stands approximately 5-foot-eight inches tall, weighs 230 pounds and has dreadlocks.
Justin Wedes, who is with OWS, claimed not to have heard of this incident prior to it being reported in the Metro.
