BRASIL : Police Hunt Newest Rio Bus Rapist.
Rio residents are stunned over reports of the newest outrageous crime there.
On Friday...an armed man robbed bus passengers...and then raped a woman for about 30 minutes...while the vehicle was still moving.
Witnesses said the man appeared to be drugged.
There have been recent problems on Rio's public transport...including the March rape of a tourist...and a bus crash that killed 7.
Robberies are common on Brasil's buses.
Brasil is spending billions preparing for tourists and the 2014 World Cup...hoping to sanitize its image for crime and violence.
