The accused was identified as Julie Rosa, who claims to be a transgender and lives with two of his friends in a rented house next to the survivor’s residence.
The woman, Maya (name changed), approached Koramangala police with the help of relatives on Saturday evening and filed a case against the suspect. Maya told police she had finished her household chores by 2.30pm and was taking rest on the first floor of her duplex house when the miscreant entered her residence.
“I heard the calling bell around 3pm and found my neighbour Rosa on the first floor. I asked him how he had entered my house. He told me the glass door of my house was broken. I went to to the ground floor and found the door was broken,” she told police.
Maya alleged Rosa dragged her into a bedroom and sexually assaulted her. She stated in her complaint that she lost consciousness due to heavy bleeding and regained it only around 6pm. “I called my relatives over phone. They came to my house by 7.30pm and brought me to the police station,” Maya said.
