Girl allegedly sexually assaulted by man testifies she has no memory of attack

A young Ontario girl who was allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a man in his 30s says she doesn’t remember anything about the attack.

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. — A young Ontario girl who was allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a man in his 30s says she doesn’t remember anything about the attack.

The girl, who is now 13, told a Peterborough, Ont., court today that the last thing she remembers about that night in August 2008 was hanging out at a friend’s house.

Next thing she remembers, she says, she was in the hospital.

Two of her friends have testified the alleged victim was severely intoxicated, saying the three of them drank a 26-ounce bottle of rum before running into the alleged attacker.

The victim testified today that she doesn’t remember drinking or doing drugs.

Thirty-three-year-old Stanley Tippett has pleaded not guilty to seven charges, including sexual assault and kidnapping.

The girl’s mom says her daughter isn’t the same little girl since the attack, and no longer goes anywhere alone.

Standing outside the courthouse Tuesday the mother, who cannot be named, said that it’s hard not knowing what is happening in the case and running into the accused’s family around town.

She, like all other potential witnesses, is being excluded from the courtroom as the judge-alone trial hears testimony.

On his way into court, Tippett — who has five children with his wife — said: Daddy loves you” — a message intended for his kids.

It’s alleged that the girl was abducted on a night she was supposed to spend at her grandmother’s after attending a birthday party with friends in August 2008.
