Tulsa Police are seeking the public's help for information about the abduction and rape of an 85-year-old nursing home resident Wednesday morning.

Tulsa Police Sgt Wayne Allen says an off duty police officer discovered the victim lying in the street, in her nightgown, in the 5100 block of South Vandalia. It was first thought the victim was a walk away from a nearby nursing home. Upon investigation, officers discovered someone had broken into her room. Additionally, their investigation indicated she had been raped. The victim is an Alzheimer's patient and remembers very little.

Police are hoping someone in and around the 5100 block of South Vandalia may have noticed something between 2:15 and 4:45 AM on Wednesday and will call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS.
