A tranquil setting to unwind along the water. A local couple thought they had found just what they were looking for in Colfax, but soon after they unpacked here on Easter weekend, their storybook stay at the Bear River Campground felt more like the storyline in a horror film. "My boyfriend described being pulled aside by the older guy," the female victim said. They say a group of male campers with a rusted truck, BB guns and a chainsaw complimented their music and even invited them over for beer. But later said it was their territory and threatened if they didn't leave by sun up they'd raid their tent and rape the woman. "Ended it by making sure my boyfriend knew they planned on raping me in
