When Ruth refused to give in to his extortion attempts, Ray saw that she meant business. So did he, Ray began watching and waiting, and one evening, when Ruth crossed a deserted parking lot and unlocked her car, Ray sprung out at her. He had robbed, assaulted, raped her and knocked her out by the time her husband Joe got there. Joe stopped him from killing her. But Ray escaped.
Ruth lay in a coma for days before she awoke to the memory of the horror of the rape. One of Billy Clyde's hookers, Estelle La Tour, recognized Ray and called a cop, Phil Brent. When Phil showed up, Ray knocked him out and tried to escape. But Billy Clyde pulled a knife on Ray, and in stabbing him, captured him. Estelle was surprised to see the man who prostituted and beat her could be such a hero. Caught between her love for Benny Sago and Billy Clyde, Estelle married the wrong man - Billy Clyde
