Buffalo Police sex offense detectives were probing an apparent drugging and rape of an 18-year-old woman on Heath Street Friday night, according to police reports.

The victim told police she and her friend were picked up about 11 p.m. Friday by two males in a U-Haul truck and taken to a party at an unknown address on Heath Street. One of the men, known as “Sausage” or “Salvatore,” is a possible suspect in her attack, police said.

At the party, the woman was given a shot of liquor, causing her to fall ill. She passed out, according to Buffalo Police reports.

When she woke up she saw the male suspect “fixing his hair in the bathroom mirror.” She told police her underwear and pants were pulled down and she felt pain in her body and had a small cut over her right eye.

The victim was treated at Kenmore Mercy Hospital where drug, sexual assault and rape kits were completed, according to police reports.
