Sex attack victim speaks out

A young woman sexually attacked while walking home from a night out with friends said she was scared knowing her attacker was still in the community.
Jane*, 23, was followed while walking home in North Melbourne in the early hours of June 30.
The man pulled her down a lane way off Chetwind Street and sexually assaulted her.
Jane said she was scared to go out in public with her attacker still on the loose.
I dont want it to happen to anyone else or anyone to go through what I went through because I used to be a very active person and never stay at home and (now) I dont go out much, especially not at night time, she said.
I could walk past this person at the train station and not know who he is, its pretty scary.
I remember his clothes, his jacket and his jeans, I didnt take much notice of him I was going home, thats all I was ready to do, was to go home.
Jane said her attacker tried to hold her hand and asked her where she was going.
I kept walking and he was following me, she said.
I thought that if I didnt show any interest towards him that hed leave me alone and then he continued following me up the street but I didnt take any notice, I thought hed leave me alone."
Jane said when he continued to follow her all the way to her street she turned around and got aggressive towards him.
And then he continued to follow me," she said.
Its hard to go out in public at all to be honest.
I dont think that anyone would want this to (happen to someone).
