Woman unconscious: No signs of forced entry

Kern County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the apparent attack of a teenager in an apartment at 335 Adams Thursday afternoon.

Deputies and medical aid were both dispatched shortly after 3 p.m. to a 911 call.

Lt. Steve Hansen said her husband found the woman when he returned home from work.

The husband who initially thought she was dead, Hansen said, but the first arriving deputies found the 18-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive but alive.

She was treated at the scene then transported to a Bakersfield hospital.

Hansen said there were no signs of forced entry.

Deputies remained at the scene gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses.
