Police hunt rapist after woman attacked in Bournemouth town centre

Bournemouth Echo: CCTV: Police hunt rapist after woman attacked in Bournemouth town centre CCTV: Police hunt rapist after woman attacked in Bournemouth town centre

DETECTIVES in Bournemouth are hunting a rapist who attacked a woman in the town centre.

Officers yesterday publicised the incident, which happened in the early hours of Sunday, May 11.

The victim, a 26-year-old woman, spent the night at the Lola Lo club, Richmond Hill, until around 2.30am.

A police spokesman said that, after leaving the club, the victim “found herself in a residential area of the town having been subjected to a serious sexual assault”.

Detective Sergeant Andy Roberts, of Bournemouth CID, said: “The victim found herself in a very distressing situation and sustained cuts and bruises.

“I am now in a position to release CCTV footage of a man I would like to speak to who kindly helped the victim in the area outside of Lola Lo at about 3.10am. He might have vital information about the incident that can assist with the investigation.”

Police would like to speak to this man who helped the victim near Lola La

He is described as white, of stocky build and has dark hair. The man was wearing a suit-style jacket, a shirt without a collar and possibly jeans and dark shoes. He was holding something in his hand, which may have been takeaway food.

DS Roberts added: “I am appealing for anyone who may be able to give me information about the victim’s movements between 2.30am and 5.30am.

“I would particularly like to speak with anyone who may have seen the victim in the area around Richmond Hill, Wimborne Road and Meyrick Park.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 11:224. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.

A 19-year-old man from Bournemouth has been arrested on suspicion of sexual offences and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Poor girl. I must say that however badly I feel for her (and I really do), I don't know why any woman wanders around Bournemouth alone in the early hours of the morning. These attacks happen almost exclusively in these circumstances, and yet women still go out alone to these places at those times. They shouldn't have to worry about it, but the truth is there is a risk and they should worry about it. I hope they catch the guy and serve justice because it's a truly heinous crime. :0(

In regard to the comments about rising crime, I don't know whether it's an increase in crime or increase in reporting, but either way, there does appear to have been a significant increase lately and it's disturbing.

There's a risk in driving a car and swimming in water and yet I never seem to hear people telling their children to never drive or swim. Every time these kind of things are said after a sexual assault the cycle of victim blaming is perpetuated. A great quote is "don't tell your daughters to stay at home, teach your sons how to behave". The solution to these crimes lie with law enforcement and parents not with innocent victims.

Women are more likely to be attacked by someone they know than a stranger. Knowing this, maybe the advice for women should be to not associate with men at all? Just steer clear of male friends, relatives, boyfriends, husbands because of the risk involved. If it was a young man who was violently attacked whilst walking home at night would you have the same response?

Oh for goodness sake all she is saying is that common sense needs to be used. Yes we all agree men should NOT rape, yes we agree that women SHOULD be able to walk the streets safely, any place, any time of day or night. We all agree that women aren't asking for ir or deserve it.

But if you get off your high horse and look at the reality you have to realise that although they shouldn't have to, women SHOULD be careful when walking the streets by themselves at night.

The rape, any rape is NOT the fault of the women, but women do need to do what they can to protect themselves from stranger rape. It's a sad state of affairs and it's terrible we have to put that pressure on women but that's the truth.

I hope the man is caught, charged and bought to justice, rape is a sick crime which should involve a long jail sentence.

Where does it say she was roaming the streets alone in the middle of the night? It says she was found in a residential area but we have no idea how she got there but you've assumed that she decided to walk home alone in the dark and that's the problem. The fact you ASSUME she made a wrong choice and walked around at night is the problem - you assume she did something wrong. For all we know she walked 100 yards from the club and was bundled in a car.

Someone gets raped and people make comments about what she should have done differently, how is that ok?!?!

Women are more likely to be attacked by someone they know than a stranger. Knowing this, maybe the advice for women should be to not associate with men at all? Just steer clear of male friends, relatives, boyfriends, husbands because of the risk involved. If it was a young man who was violently attacked whilst walking home at night would you have the same response?
Yes, I would! The fact is that as much as we would like to control the thugs who cause trouble out and about, we know we can't. I don't blame the victim at all and as I said (although it seems to have been largely ignored) we shouldn't have to worry about it at all. But ultimately, so many attacks seem to happen in these places at these times of night that I don't understand why anybody goes out to those places and at those times of night.

For everyone who has verbally unpleasant because I've said this, I'd like to ask why YOU don't go out at that time of night and to those places! For the majority of us, it's because we know it isn't safe. We SHOULD feel free to go where we want, when we want, but in reality we can't control the risk, so we make the judgement that it's safer not to go.

I would never, in any way, blame the victim because it is ALWAYS the perpetrator's fault. But just because it's someone else's fault we get hurt, that doesn't mean we can't take reasonable precautions to limit the risk.

Happy to answer why I don't go out at night...

I do go out at this time of night, I'm a 25 year old girl and live 15 minutes from Lola Lo, the club mentioned, the girl in this story could have easily been me. I generally don't walk home on my own but once or twice when I've lost my friends in town, I've had no choice. Taxis won't drive up my road late at night because it's so bumpy! You have no idea how this woman ended up in this situation, you don't even know she was wandering around on her own late at night - the article doesn't say that.

ARE YOU ACTUALLY SERIOUS????

Under Islamic law, rape can only be proven if the rapist confesses or if there are four male witnesses. Women who allege rape without the benefit of the act having been witnessed by four men who subsequently develop a conscience are actually confessing to having sex. If they or the accused happens to be married, then it is considered to be adultery.

The Qur'an:
Qur'an (2:282) - Establishes that a woman's testimony is worth only half that of a man's in court (there is no "he said/she said" gridlock in Islam).

Qur'an (24:4) - "And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses (to adultery), flog them..." Strictly speaking, this verse addresses adultery (revealed at the very time that Muhammad's favorite wife was being accused of adultery on the basis of only three witnesses coincidentally enough). However it is a part of the theological underpinning of the Sharia rule on rape, since if there are not four male witnesses, the rape "did not occur".

It's not at all. It could just be a rise in reporting?

It's always stupid when people like you make these daft comments.

Unless you're sat there with all the necessary facts and figures in front of you, in which case, I apologise
Come on lets look at what has happened in the last month/6 weeks.

1 Armed robbery in Bookies- Winton

1 Armed Robbery in Bookies - Boscombe

1 Armed Robbery in Bookies - Castle Lane

1 Rape - Bournemouth

1 Shooting - Townsend

1 Stabbing - Sovereign Centre

You may say there is not many in this list, but lets look at how serious they are.
...aside from three of them being allegedly commited by the same person how many of those cases remain unsolved/with no arrests?

Wonder if the victim was questioned on her drinking that night. The blame culture is disgusting and this isn't just members of the public this is within the police too. Rape is such serious life changing experience. Victims go through hours of torture emotionally after the event and society still has a victim blame culture around rape "maybe she was too drunk" "what does she expect wearing a dress that short" "she shouldn't be out on her own like that"
Il pose these comments in different scenarios:
"She would have been able to manage that burglar better if she wasn't drunk"
"That girl wouldn't have had her purse stolen if she hadn't been out on her own"
Sound ridiculous doesn't it! Well why not in the case of rape??
The pain and despair of rape is completely undermined in the society!!
