A woman told police she was raped in a parking garage in Downtown Oakland Thursday afternoon -- in the middle of the day.

Police say it happened at a garage at Clay and 14th Streets, right behind City Hall around 12:30.

The victim thinks she may have seen her attacker recently near Lake Merritt and 14th Street. She described him as missing a front tooth.

He apparently also wore large dark sunglasses and large black headphones around his neck.
