A sex worker in Conception Bay South is posting warnings on an adult classifieds website about an attack last week in her own home.
The woman — whom CBC News is not identifying to protect her safety — says a former client barged into her house unannounced on May 1, without a booking or prior phone call.
'Because I refuse to service anyone under the influence, I asked him to leave and he refused' - Sex worker who reported attack in her C.B.S. home
The worker said in the online posting that she had not seen the man for at least three and a half months. She added that she informed police he had been working in Alberta.
"He was very intoxicated," the woman wrote.
"Because I refuse to service anyone under the influence, I asked him to leave and he refused," she said.
Instead, she said, the man made his way into her home and chased her as she tried to flee. The alleged attacker hit her on the head with an object, and then left the scene before police arrived.
The woman sustained a large gash on her head that required staples at a local hospital. She suffered a concussion, loss of blood and temporary vision loss in one eye. She also went into convulsions after the attack.
CBC News confirmed details of the attack with the woman.
Description of suspect given to police
The woman has taken the case to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, and is expected to meet with a detective on Wednesday.
The woman said while she does not know the man's name, she has an email address.
She described the dark-haired man as being in his mid-30s, about 6'1" and having two large moles on the left side of his face. She said he was driving a newer-model black Dodge truck.
While she's not sure of a motive for the attack, she said she discovered on her return from hospital that cash had been stolen.
