A double manhunt was launched after a 15-year-old girl was raped at a railway station then abused again by a man she flagged down to help. The teenager was first attacked near Aston Villa’s football ground in Birmingham between 7pm on Tuesday and 2am on Wednesday.
The victim had walked to Witton station with her friend, but was led away by a man who approached her. Shortly after that attack, the girl walked out of the station and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help. However, after getting in the car she was then raped a second time by another man.
A major investigation, involving detectives from both British Transport Police and West Midlands Police, is now under way to try to identify both attackers and appeal for witnesses. The first attacker is described as Asian with light skin, brown eyes, was of a skinny build and about 6ft tall. The second attacker is also described as Asian, in his early 20s, 5ft 6 or 7ins tall, of large build with a tight-cropped beard.
