I'm sorry... am I the only one who finds this very scary? Not least of which for the lack of details?

WTF?! That poor woman. No one deserves to be left like that. Police need to make this a priority and put the culprits info all over the news to warn people. The world is a crazy place and apparently not even our beloved Mountain View is exempt from it.

RIP to that woman.
