A 15-year-old girl who flagged down a car for help after she was raped in Birmingham was raped again by the driver who pulled over.

A double manhunt is now under way to find the attackers, both described as Asian men in their early 20s.

Police said the first attack happened this week in an isolated part of Birmingham's Witton railway station, between 7pm on Tuesday and 2am on Wednesday.

The girl had walked to the station with her friend before being led away by a man who then raped her.

She left the station shortly after the attack and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help.

She was then raped again after getting into the second man's car.

Detectives from British Transport Police and West Midlands Police have launched a major investigation to try to identify both attackers and appeal for witnesses.

The first attacker is described as having light skin, brown eyes, a skinny build and is about 6ft tall.

He was wearing a tracksuit and black trainers.

The second attacker is described as being around 5ft 7in, of large build with a close-cropped beard, wearing a blue jumper and black jeans.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick said: "My detectives are currently examining all available CCTV in an effort to identify the offenders and whilst these enquiries are made, we are keen to speak with any potential witnesses.

"Your information could prove vital in our enquiries to identify the perpetrators."

CCTV images have been released of two men being sought in connection with separate incidents in which a young girl was raped twice in the same night.

Detectives said the teenager was first assaulted in a secluded part of Birmingham’s Witton railway station, near the Aston Villa football ground, some time between 8pm on Tuesday and 2am the following morning.

The 14-year-old victim had walked to the station with her friend, but was led away by a man who approached the victim.

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.

Detectives from the joint British Transport Police and West Midlands Police investigation team have now released CCTV stills of two men they want to speak to.

They have also revealed another man is now thought to have been present in the moments leading up to the station attack.

The first man who approached the victim is described as Asian with light skin, brown eyes, was of slim build and about 6ft tall.

He was wearing a track suit top and bottoms, black trainers and was in his early 20s.

The other man in the station is described as Asian in his early 20s, 5ft 6/7ins tall, of large build with a tight-cropped beard and was wearing a blue jumper and black jeans.

The man in the vehicle is described as thick-set, about 5ft 6ins tall, with large biceps.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick, of British Transport Police, said: “We are releasing multiple CCTV images of men we wish to speak with in connection.

“I would like to hear from anyone who might know who these men are.

“Likewise, if you saw these men between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning then please get in touch. Your information could prove vital in our inquiries.

“In particular, I would like to hear from anyone who might have seen a teenage girl walking near to Witton station at approximately 2am on Wednesday morning.

“If you were in the area at the time or live locally to Witton station then please contact us if you heard or saw anything out of the ordinary.

“Finally, I’d like to thank the public for their help in our investigation so far.

“A number of people have got in touch and I am extremely grateful to them.”

Hat's off to the Police


Two men have been arrested in connection with the first of two separate rape attacks on a 14-year-old girl in Birmingham.

The suspects, aged 27 and 35 and from the Birmingham area, were arrested on suspicion of rape and are being held in custody.

The two sexual assaults happened within a few hours.

The initial attack was in a secluded part of Birmingham's Witton railway station, not far from Aston Villa's football stadium, between 8pm on Tuesday evening and 2am on Wednesday morning.

At around 2am on Wednesday, the girl left in a disorientated state via the station entrance.

As she walked away she flagged down a vehicle. She was raped a second time in the car of the man who stopped.

Police are still looking for a man in connection with the second attack. He is described as being about 5ft 6in, thick set and with large biceps.

In an update on Saturday morning, DCI Tony Fitzpatrick from British Transport Police said: "Overnight there have been significant developments after we released CCTV images of two men we would like to speak with.

"I'd like to thank the public and the media for the overwhelming support in sharing this appeal."

DCI Fitzpatrick added: "Both these arrests relate to the first incident at Witton station on Tuesday evening this week.

"Our investigation into the second incident in the vehicle continues at a pace. The young victim was raped for a second time in a vehicle close to Witton station at approximately 2am.

"I am still looking to hear from anyone who lives locally to Witton and saw a young girl walking by herself during the early hours of Wednesday morning.

"If you saw any vehicle or any person acting suspiciously then please get in touch as soon as possible."

Anyone with information can send a text to 61016, or call 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference 65 of 26/07/2017.
