It was just before 3 a.m. Sunday morning and the 20-year-old victim was with friends who were looking to grab a bite to eat.
Sgt. Jason Hauer told ABC 4 Utah, "She needed to use the restroom and was dropped off to go into the restaurant."
For some reason the doors to the restaurant were open. Normally at 3 a.m. the restaurant is closed and only the drive through is open.
Moments after the woman went in a man followed her. He's described as white or Hispanic 5’10” to six feet tall with dark hair, weighing between 180 to 200 pounds.
Sgt. Hauer said, "Physically overwhelmed her and was able to take her down to the ground.”
Then the employees heard screaming coming from the bathroom.
“They were confused by it obviously because as part of the protocol they lock the door typically and don't allow people in that late at night,” said Sgt. Hauer.
Employees called 911 and the woman's friends wondering what was taking so long went to go look for her.
"The friends entered to look for the victim and actually walked in on this taking place,” said Sgt. Hauer.
It’s still unclear to police if the employees checked the bathroom or if it was the woman's friends who got to the bathroom first, but what is clear is the suspect got away. He's covering his face in the video, but police say the victim fought back and he's believed to have scratches on his face.
If you know anything about this crime or the suspect, you’re asked to contact West Valley City Police.
