A man with a razor blade raped a woman last night in a phone booth as people walked by, police reported. He is believed to have also raped another woman in the area an hour earlier.
Because the phone booth shields a person's upper body, pedestrians didn't notice that anything was wrong. The rapist attacked the woman, who had stopped to make a phone call, by grabbing her from behind, beating her with the phone, and raping and sodomizing her. One pedestrian finally stopped and shouted at the man, who fled and is still at large. The pedestrian helped the woman and called 911. A man fitting the rapist's description had threatened another woman earlier with a razor blade and raped her in an alley.

1/27/2016 Taiwan Elects First Woman President - In a landslide victory, the leader of Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Tsai Ing-wen won the country's presidential election, becoming the first woman in Taiwan's history to hold the position.
Emphasizing her party's commitment to maintaining Taiwan's independence from China, Tsai won over young voters eager to usher in a political changing of the guard following some 70 years of dominance by the pro-Chinese unification party, the Kuomintang (KMT), chaired by presidential opponent Eric Chu. . . .
