Alaaden Abbas, 51.
In the early morning hours of July 30, a woman's screams brought St. Louis County police to a west-county street. By that night, police had arrested the man she says broke in and sodomized her in her apartment.

Alaaden Abbas, 51, of the 4500 block of Varrelmann Avenue in the Bevo Mill neighborhood, was charged with first-degree sodomy, first-degree burglary and armed criminal action on July 31. He is held on a $250,000 cash-only bond.

The victim tells police she was at home in the 700 block of Overlook Circle, near Dougherty Ferry and Big Bend roads, when Abbas forced his way into her apartment. Armed with a knife, he told her he would kill her if she screamed.

Abbas then sodomized the victim, according to police.

Here's the report from police:

On Thursday, July 31, 2014, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office issued charges on Alaaden Abbas, 51 years of age, of the 4500 block of Varrelmann, St. Louis, Missouri, 63116, for one count of Burglary in the First Degree, one count of Sodomy in the first degree, and one count of Armed Criminal Action. Abbas is currently being held on a $250,000 cash only bond. During the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 30, 2014, officers from the St. Louis County Police Department West County Precinct - Valley Park Detail, responded to the 700 block of Overlook Circle for a female screaming for the police. The facts supporting this case state that Abbas entered the victim's apartment without her consent. Abbas was armed with a knife and told the victim not to scream or he would kill her. Abbas then forcibly sodomized the victim. An investigation by detectives from the St. Louis County Police Bureau of Crimes Against Persons led to Abbas' arrest on the evening of July 30, 2014.

But it's okay to post threads all the time about gay couples that sodomize each other?

Scary? No fucking shit. A woman was raped. You're professional writers, why don't you throw a little tact in there?

That is exactly what he is saying. Social media has proclaimed guilt without waiting for the justice sys….fuck, i was just gonna make a joke but then I started actually reading the comments and now I need to take 12 showers and burn my computer.

Sodomy does not just mean anal sex, it is a term used for oral sex as well... It actually means a sex act that deviates from the natural way... ( those were my words, but look it up)

People are crazy and you can't even be safe inside your own house anymore. Everyday the news is loaded with rapes, stabbings, robberies and murders. What has happened to humanity? \U0001f623 I feel so bad for the victim. I hope she can recover from this and I hope that the perp goes to prison for a long, long, time.

However horrendous this seems, it worries me that social media always proclaims guilt without waiting for the justice system to determine guilt. Have we become a society of reactionaries based on a few words in a news article? What is the eventuality of this hearsay? Pitchforks? Hangings? Even the headline is presumptuous: "St. Louis man Burglarizes home, Sodomized Woman at Knifepoint". Wait... Yes this human could have committed a heinous act, or maybe not. All of you proclaiming justice and gallows need to take a good look at yourself and question whether you truly believe in habeas corpus.

maybe because joe biden... obama's vice president said the best way to handle and attacker is to pee on them.

I appreciate the apology. Sorry if I sounded snappy. The RFT's intro already had me wound up. Haha.

Technically, you're not following the rules of grammar with the 's', either. An apostrophe followed by an 's' makes a word possessive, not plural.

I was just saying, maybe if she had a revolver under her pillow she wouldnt have been so vulnerable to an attack from a psychopath, i understand where your coming from though it sounded more rude then I meant

What a stupid comment. Have you been raped while a knife was on you? If you haven't, have no idea of how you would react in that situation, but the natural and completely understandable reaction would be paralyzed with fear, regardless of whatever arsenal you might have stashed away .

How about too bad she was raped?

Amy Monroe

Scary? That's the best word a professional writer can come up with to describe an act that destroyed any chance of this woman ever feeling safe again? Poor taste is an understatement. Stick to stories about music festivals, because this is nothing less than insulting to every rape victim that has the article show up in her or his newsfeed.

Ps. Racist comments and jokes only make the peanut gallery seem stupid. We are all capable of the same level of depravity. Skin color has nothing to do with it.

I have to tell you RFT, I am not a fan of the caption title you chose to post for this story "Well this is scary"... Um, yeah. It f***king is. Way to go. I know this woman has a long road ahead of her. I cannot begin to imagine how she must feel. May he pay for his crime, and this woman begin to heal.

What I would like to know is WHY is Rape NOT considered a "Hate Crime"??? This disgusting waste of good Oxygen needs to rot in prison.

Yes they have to be that precise if they want to convict the guy. Any missing detail will get a trail thrown out or handed a not guilty verdict.
