Ladies, please hold your ‘vex money’. Please make sure you have a designated driver before the night begins. Please do not leave home unless you’re sure of how you’re going to get back home. Please only drink what you can handle. Please do not go with unregistered cabs – Uber is a wonderful thing. Please do not go off with strange men – even if their swag is undeniable.
Stay safe. Stay well. Stay sober.
CCTV has captured the chilling moment a suspected rapist carried a semi-conscious woman in his arms just minutes before she was brutally attacked close to a city centre nightspot.
The 25-year-old victim had been drinking at a bar called Walkabout in Birmingham shortly before the attack happened and left with a man with dwarfism, known only as Kevin. The pair then started talking to a black man, said to have been known to Kevin, who they saw outside a branch of Sainsbury’s on Broad Street. Police say the man spoke to Kevin before lifting the woman up into his arms and carrying her away.
The horrific attack happened October, 2014, but the victim has only now allowed West Midlands Police detectives to release footage of her terrifying ordeal in a bid to help them catch her attacker.
The victim says:
Do you recognise him? Were you in the area around the time of the attack? I appreciate it was a long time ago but the situation will have looked very odd and will undoubtedly have stayed with you.
I would also appeal to the man in the footage to call me. Please, come forward now. This is your chance to explain.
We will not give up on finding the man who carried out the attack. We will also not give up on finding Kevin
Anyone with information has been asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
