Search for West End rapists hampered by faulty CCTV damaged in floods
The comfit images of the suspects involved in the West End rape released by police

THE hunt for two rapists who stalked a woman on a busy Brisbane street has been hampered by CCTV cameras damaged by January's flood.
Detectives are still trying to track down the pair, who abducted and raped a 20-year-old woman as she walked through West End about 11.30pm on April 16.
Police claimed if the cameras on Melbourne St had been working the rapists would have been filmed stalking the terrified woman.
"Investigations are continuing and we'll be working on this one through to the end," Acting Inspector Tim Leadbetter said.
The crime shocked many who live and party in inner-city Brisbane because it was so brazen.
The woman, who sustained serious injuries, left the nightclub and walked along Boundary St where she noticed the pair outside Little Greek Taverna, on the corner of Boundary and Melbourne streets.
She quickly became suspicious as they followed her along Melbourne St past several shops with CCTV cameras that point on to the footpath, but were not working because of flood damage.
They pounced on the corner of Manning St, dragged her into a property and attacked her behind air-conditioning units near the rear driveway.
A witness told police the pair had been drinking but their images had not shown up on CCTV footage from nearby bars.
Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Hunt for attackers after West End rape
POLICE still have no clues to the identity of two men wanted for the savage rape of a woman as she walked to a bus stop in West End last Friday night.
Many people who thought they recognised the men have phoned through to police via Crime Stoppers but no new leads have yet emerged.
Fewer than 100 phone calls have been made to police after they released confit images of the men and CCTV footage yesterday.
The 20-year-old woman left a private function at the Uber nightclub and was walking to catch the bus home when she was approached by the two men at the intersection of Melbourne St and Manning St about 11.30pm.
She was overpowered by the men and violently raped in a dark alleyway.
Police released comfit images of the men and CCTV footage in the hope it would jog someone's memory.
Insp Rod Kemp said the young woman had stayed on the main road and practised safe behaviour.
He described the attack as the "most aggressive" rape he had seen during his years in service and said it had resulted in major external and internal injuries.
"The investigators are wondering if they have done it before because they seemed so well-orchestrated and the violence they used, well animals don't do that to each other do they?," he said.
Insp Kemp said women in the area should be wary about their safety.
"This person did all the right things, as far as I'm concerned," he said.
"She stuck to the main drag, she walked to catch the bus and unfortunately this has happened to her."
Police said the woman had been released from hospital but would not release details on who found her or how she managed to raise the alarm for help following the rape.
Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
