Police Say Rapist Forced Victim to Call Her Boyfriend During Attack — She Called 911 Instead

After abducting a woman, 27-year-old Robert Giles allegedly forced his victim to call her boyfriend so he could listen as Giles raped her.

Instead, she called 911.

According to police, Giles kidnapped the woman from Hapeville, Georgia, and brought her to the back of a closed adult entertainment store at approximately 4 a.m. Monday. Giles then allegedly told the victim to call her boyfriend so that he could listen. Instead, she called 911 and told Giles that the operator was her significant other.

“She explained to him what the perpetrator had told her; that he was wanting him to listen while she was being raped,” Clayton County Police Department Maj. Joe Woodall told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

While he played along, the operator dispatched police who were able to arrest Giles during the act.

“They were able to stop it right then and there and snatched him right from the car,” Woodall said.

Woodall told the Journal-Constitution that it was “quick thinking” on behalf of the operator as he “might have saved her life.”

According to WSB-TV, Giles is now facing rape, false imprisonment and obstruction charges. Hapeville police, who have jurisdiction over where Giles allegedly abducted the woman, is planning to file kidnapping charges against the man.

WSB reported that the 911 call is too graphic to share; Woodall called the recording “horrific.”
