An 18-year-old, reportedly just out of high school, has been charged with trying to rape his friend’s mother during a sleepover in Tennessee.
Police said Jordan Corter and other “boys” showed up about 8:30 p.m. at the woman’s home in Arlington, outside Memphis. In an interview with WREG, one resident compared the leafy neighborhood to the fictional suburbia of Mayberry, where nothing goes wrong.
She was “awaked at 0230 hours to Jordan Corter knocking on her bedroom door.”
The woman answered the door, thinking something was wrong. “Jordan forced himself into the bedroom and locked the door behind him,” she later told police.
She said he pushed her to the bed and put a hand down her shorts. In a subsequent interview, the affidavit continued, Corter wept and told police “he basically forced her to do something she didn’t want to do,” and “should not be forgiven.”
He allegedly tried to rape the woman, Fox 13 in Memphis reported, but she broke free, giving herself a black eye in the struggle. She told investigators she kneed Corter in the groin and got to a pistol she kept in the bedroom.
“Police said the woman then placed the gun in the man’s face and told him to leave,” Fox 13 reported.
