I can hear the defense attorney now: It was consensual, your honor. Every girl wants to have sex with my client. Even though he stinks of garlic and goat sh*t, women find him irresistible.
TWO men have been arrested after a 15-year-old girl was raped and then raped again by another man she flagged down for help moments after the first attack.
A 35-year-old and a 27-year-old, who are both from the Birmingham area have been arrested on suspicion of rape.
They are currently being held by police as they continue their enquiries.
Detectives said the teen was first attacked in a secluded part of Witton railway station, near the Aston Villa football ground, some time between 7pm on Tuesday and 2am the following morning.
The victim had walked to the 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.
But after getting in the car she was raped a second time by another man.
A major investigation, involving detectives from the British Transport Police and West Midlands Police, is now underway to try to identify both attackers and appeal for witnesses.
The first attacker is described as Asian with light skin, brown eyes, a skinny build and about 6ft tall.
He was wearing a tracksuit top and bottoms, black trainers and was in his early 20s.
The second attacker is also 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.
Today Detective Chief Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick, of 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.
“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.”
