WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita police say a 59-year-old woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition after being assaulted and possibly raped.

It happened at an apartment in the 600 block of North Broadway Tuesday night.

A woman in a nearby apartment heard a scream for help. She went to the apartment she thought it was coming from and knocked.

A man answered the door with no pants on. The woman saw the 59-year-old victim lying on the floor naked and hurt.

She ran back to her apartment to call 911 and then went back to help the 59-year-old victim.

During that time, the suspect came back and tried to kick in the door.

The suspect jumped on a bike and left.

The 59-year-old woman was taken to Via-Christi on St. Francis in critical condition.  She had to be intubated.

Police are waiting to interview her.
