15-year-old raped teenage girl raped again by driver she flagged down for help
A 14-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 to assist her.

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

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

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

She escaped the station shortly after the attack and flagged down a passing vehicle for help.

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

A major investigation has been launched by detectives from British Transport Police and West Midlands Police in order to try to identify both attackers and appeal for witnesses.

The victim described the first attacker as having light skin, brown eyes, a skinny build and a height about 6ft tall, wearing a tracksuit and black trainers.

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

"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," said Detective Chief Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick said.

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