Angela Rose was 17 years old when she was abducted by a convicted murderer at knifepoint in the parking lot of Woodfield mall in Schaumburg. She was then driven to a forest preserve and sexually assaulted.

That was nearly 20 years ago. Angela Rose (she doesn’t use her last name for privacy reasons) recounts the horrific details of her experience —and talks about the advocacy organization she founded to help other survivors —in “48 Hours Live to Tell: I Remember Everything,” a short-run series from the producers of CBS’spopular true-crime series.

“Live to Tell” features first-hand accounts from people who nearly lost their lives. Anchored by Chicago-based “48 Hours” correspondent Maureen Maher, Angela Rose’s episode will air at 8 p.m. Saturday on WBBM-Channel 2.
