A manhunt is currently underway in Birmingham, England, after a teen girl was raped twice in one day by two different men.
BBC News reports that the first attack occurred at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, at the Witton railway station in Birmingham, where she was kept for hours against her will. She left the station disoriented and was attacked yet again at around 2 a.m. the following morning. The victim, 15, said she walked to station with a friend when a man approached her, lured her away, and raped her. It’s still unclear why the friend left and why the police weren’t called.
After the first sexual assault, the teen fled the scene and flagged down a man in a car for assistance. When she got in the vehicle, the driver reportedly raped her, then pushed her out of the car and sped away.
