Cold Case: Girl, 16, Abducted 2 Days Ago
A 16-YEAR-OLD northern suburbs girl has told police of her
terror as she was abducted by two men in
Pooraka earlier this week.
The teenager was snatched on Maxwell Rd, Pooraka,
between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Monday. She was held down
in a car and driven around for between 30 and 40 minutes
but is not sure where she was taken during her ordeal.
The girl was walking to a skate park on Maxwell Rd to meet
a friend when a man got out of a dark green four-door sedan
about 300m from the park, she told police.
The car had a loud exhaust and window tint that was coming off.
The man then dragged her into the car and
both men attempted to sexually assault her.
Detective Senior Sergeant Peter Shanahan said the
teenager had her mobile telephone and jewellery
stolen while she was in the car.
"There was some sexual connotations in the discussions
and some attempt at sexual activity," he said.
"She is OK. She is still shaken but
she is coping all right."
The girl received a few scratches during the
attack. The men let her out of the car near St Thomas
More's Primary School on Yorktown Rd, Elizabeth East.
The driver of the car is described as 25 to 30 years old
with an average build. He is slightly chubby, with dark
skin. He had black, wavy collar-length hair and some facial
hair. His hair was parted in the middle.
He was wearing black track-style pants with a coloured
stripe down the side and a dirty plain blue singlet. The
second offender was described as a caucasian male, 30 to
35 years old, skinny and tall with a shaved head. He spoke
with a slight British accent.
He was wearing black track-style pants with an unknown
coloured stripe down the side, white shoes and a tight
Michael Shrader, 24, regularly uses the skate park. He said
there was often people hanging around.
"It is a notorious area for people hanging out around here," he said.
"There are a lot of idiots about."
Sen-Sgt Shanahan confirmed that the girl had reported the incident
immediately. However, police did not inform the public
about the abduction until yesterday.
"We have been working with the victim in attempting to compile a
computer generated image (of the two men)," he said.
Meanwhile, a girl, 14, told police yesterday she had been sexually
assaulted by a group of seven men in the western suburbs.
The girl was grabbed by the men in Davidson St, Rosewater, as she
walked to the Alberton Railway Station just after 8pm last Thursday.
"A number of the men held her while
one of the men sexually assaulted her," a police spokeswoman said.
The men fled when disturbed by people passing by. The men were all
described as being Aboriginal and wearing dark clothing.
