Both had suffered cuts and bruises in struggles with the assailant, officials said. As the police began a search for the rapist with roadblocks, dogs and helicopters, word of the attacks stunned residents of the quiet hamlets of northern Dutchess County, where violent crimes are rare and the talk at this time of year is more likely to be about boating, fishing, weddings, Fourth of July plans and the county fair.
This is a very small, quaint town. Bourne said that she learned of the attack from a friend who warned her to lock her door because a rapist was on the loose. After work Saturday night, she added, she and other waitresses had been afraid to go to a parking lot behind the restaurant. Working at another store in Rhinebeck, a year old girl who did not want to give her name, said: ''People think that this sort of thing happens only in New York City or other big cities and not a small touristy town like this.
But all of a sudden, this shows it can. Everyone was shocked. Over the weekend, sheriff's deputies and state and local police officers set up roadblocks over a wide area of Dutchess and Columbia Counties and handed out fliers, describing the attack and the assailant, to pedestrians, storekeepers and homeowners in dozens of villages and towns.

Pulling me down a flight of steps, we ended up in a basement full of strange devices, including a cage. Again, the details are a blur, but I remember him removing my clothes, locking a dog collar around my neck and dragging me upstairs. Up in his bedroom I was chained to the floor. I felt the pain of him ripping my hair — I had braids from a family holiday in the Caribbean, so he pulled them at the roots. Then he broke my nose and raped me. I know I could regain memories through hypnosis, but why would I want to?
In the four days that followed I was chained up, raped, beaten and tortured. I did whatever I had to do to survive, no matter how humiliating, painful, or disgusting. I did it because I wanted to live and hoped people might be looking for me.
Hope was all I had. Lying on the floor naked, weeping, I felt pure despair. How could I escape? I was just 13 years old and 6 stone, he was over 21 stone. I pictured him waiting behind the door and panicked that any noise I made would prompt him to kill me on the spot.
I was ordered out naked to the barrel of a gun, I thought I was going to die, then I saw FBI — the three most beautiful letters — on his jacket. My abductor had tripped up after livestreaming a video of him abusing me to a group online. When one of the guys realised he could be implicated as an accomplice, he called the police.
Using the IP address they tracked me down. It made me realise that what I went through happens to kids younger than me, even babies. How can you begin to comprehend that? That evening I was taken to a wonderful foster family. I sat up all night waiting for my parents. Being finally reunited with them was incredible. They ran towards me and my dad gave me this hug that was so special, there are no words.
People blamed my parents — even distant relatives — and we were treated horribly. Before the trial he was eventually sentenced to 19 years and seven months in prison the FBI needed me to identify myself in the videos. I had to watch myself being tortured. Being abused is indescribable, but to see it through the eyes of your abuser is another thing entirely.
