Victim Gets Emotional Recounting Rape

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

In the Toby Griego trial, the neighbor of a victim and a police officer who was part of the investigation testified.

Tamika Wilson says one of the victims came to her place and told her she was raped. They called 911 to report the crime. Tamika Wilson then took the victim to Billings Clinic. Tamika broke down on the stand when she recounted the moments of what happened.

Officer David Firebaugh of the Billings Police Department also testified and talked about the crime and the crime scene.

Then, one of the victims took the stand on Tuesday morning. She testified saying "it was painful, it was scary," and it lasted about 5 minutes.  She says she woke up to someone covering her mouth with a black glove and thought it might be a prank. She became very emotional while discussing the moments leading up to the rape. She also testified that the rapist was angry. She says the rapist asked for money after he tied her up.

As the trial of alleged serial rapist Toby Griego continues, a victim says she was forced to take a bath and scrub her body clean while he searched he dressers.  "At this point, I was just hoping I would survive it!  It didn't matter if I was hurt, this was a life or death."  She also testified, "I was so overwhelmed that I asked him to stop because I felt like I was going to hyperventilate.  He then brought me a water."  She then says, the rapist told her he was going to post the rape on YouTube.  Before the rapist left, he said "same time, same place tomorrow."
