Victim's Dog fights Off Sex Attacker
A pet dog fought off a tree branch-wielding sex attacker
who tried to rape a northern suburbs woman along a popular
Detective Sergeant Rob Jordan said there was little doubt the
woman's dog saved her from being raped.
"If it wasn't for the dog the assault would have been more serious," he said.
The attack happened as the woman, 34, walked her blue
heeler-cross kelpie on the Jingili side of Rapid Creek
reserve about 7am last Friday. The woman noticed her
attacker lurking behind as she walked on the dirt track
approaching the Water Gardens and started sprinting for
safety but was tackled and assaulted behind bushes.
The frightened woman lashed out as her attacker tried to
rip her clothes off when the dog forced him back by snapping at his ankles.
The cowardly attacker then grabbed a tree branch to fend
off the dog and continue the assault but the dog bit at his ankles again.
The woman's screams were heard by two women on the other
side of the creek and the man fled.
Sgt Jordan said police waited five days to alert the public
about the attempted rape because of delays in getting a
statement from the traumatised victim.
He warned women to be alert at all times when exercising.
"Everyone has the right to walk in safety but women should
be mindful assaults can happen and they should take
precautions by exercising with someone else or with
their dog," he said.
Police do not believe the attempted rape is linked to
an indecent assault on a woman sleeping in her nearby
Rapid Creek home less than 24 hours later.
The attacker is described as Aboriginal, about 180cm tall,
skinny build, aged in his late 20s to early 30s with wild,
black bushy hair. He was wearing navy blue football shorts.
Anyone with information should call police on 131 444.
