A woman is recovering from a brutal attack in Torrance several months ago that left her with facial fractures.
The woman, who has not been identified, was sexually assaulted and attacked by a homeless man while she was walking her two dogs in Torrance at night.
Theon July 31 at about 1:00 a.m. in the 4300 block of Emerald Street.
Forty-six-year-old Darrell Waters, a homeless man, was arrested the following Monday by the Torrance Police Department.
While the suspect is in custody, that hasn’t accelerated the victim’s healing process.
According to the victim’s friend Debbie Keyser, who started a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $64,000, the victim has continued to seek therapy for emotional distress and effects from post traumatic stress disorder.
The victim will receive reconstructive dental work on Oct. 14.
However, there is a good chance that the victim will have to face the man who attacked her once again in court if the case goes to a jury trial, according to Keyser.
