CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It's another 19 Action News Exclusive.

The unthinkable happened to a woman while she was driving.

Police say one second she was stopped at a red light and the next thing she knew she was being raped.

According to cops, Otilio Allen just jumped in the victim's car at the corner of W. 58th and Lorain. Allen then forced her to drive to an alley and have sex.

"I'm like, oh my God he told me had a gun and a knife. It was intimidating. Very intimidating," said the victim.

It did not take police long to catch him.

Allen has been a suspect in a series of sex assaults before.

Two years ago, Otilio Allen was locked up for raping a west side woman at knife point but he was let go after investigators couldn't tie him to the attack.

This latest victim hopes things will be different this time.

"Yes I'm gonna stand up. I will be in court I will be there, I will be there."
