alleged rapist

ACT Policing is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the man in the image who is alleged to have sexually assaulted a 27-year-old woman in the early hours of Saturday morning (March 17).

Between 3 and 4 am the woman was walking back to her apartment on Northbourne Avenue from the CBD when she was approached by the man on Mort Street.

The man engaged in conversation with the woman, seeking her assistance to a matter. The woman allowed the man into her apartment where he has then sexually assaulted her.

The alleged offender is described as being Caucasian in appearance, approximately 183 cm (6’) tall, with short hair and of an average build. He was wearing a red short sleeved T-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone who may be able to assist with the identity of the man or can assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

In his defence though.. it is only alleged and from the pics it looks like hes holding her hand on one photo and shes grabbing his arse in another….

I don’t agree – it’s all in the angle of the photos. In the first photo, it just so happens that she is possibly to the side and half a step behind him, and just happened to be swinging her arm. In the second photo, they aren’t actually holding hands. His hand is in the fore front, hiding her hand (and her fingers aren’t clasping his hand).
If the photos hadn’t been cropped where they were, it would be more noticeable that there is not, in fact, any contact.

I don’t know where you got this idea. An ‘expert’ witness is usually a member of a forensics team (there are others, but they wouldn’t be involved in this instance), who analyze information (DNA, voice recordings, fingerprints etc.), often without even knowing names or details of the case. They are about as unbiased as you can get.

And once again, I am astounded by how many people *know* exactly what occurred. I wish I were an all-knowing being like all of you.

UPDATE: Win News reported tonight that Police have identified the man in the pictures above however “inquiries are ongoing.”

Again, non of us knows what exactly went on, but it sounds based on that as if, either there’s a lack of evidence resulting in the unfortunate “he said, she said” stalemate, or there might be more to this. Time will tell.

I didn’t bring up this case, but I do think it’s relevant, because of the scepticism shown in this discussion towards a rape victim – based not on facts, but prejudice about what must have happened.

Not a shade on the prejudice from those who clearly think that the penalty for an unproven rape should be brutal murder.

Here’s the actual judgement from that Telopea Park case:

http://www.courts.act.gov.au/supreme/judgment/view/3900/title/r-v-sc

This spells out the evidence. If you haven’t got time to read it all, skip to points 57 and 76-77.

I didn’t bring up this case, but I do think it’s relevant, because of the scepticism shown in this discussion towards a rape victim – based not on facts, but prejudice about what must have happened. That’s scarily similar to the willingness to just make up a story about the alleged rape we’re discussing.

57. An “expert” witness also told a court that the carpet glue in Lindy Chamberlain’s car was definitely foetal blood. You can find an “expert” witness to tell almost anything you want.

75-76. So what? She took a knife and then lured a drunk bloke she didn’t know into Telopea Park.

I notice no mention of her notebook/diary. Did the jury not find what she had written in it interesting? Or were they not given it?
You also don’t point to any evidence of her having rung a friend and boasted about having “almost been raped last night”, on the very day of her luring of the drunk bloke into the park. Did the jury even get to hear this?
I’ve also heard of something called “proportionate force”. Did the judge explain this concept to the jury before asking their opinion?
Did he not point out to them that the killing blow, clearly administered from behind while the victim was lying prone was not what we call a defensive blow in any way shape or form?

Nope. She got away with a (long-premeditated) murder. Typical legal system shenanigans.

Thanks for posting that.

My initial reaction to that particular insanity was Good Grief! However, I then recalled a recent instance where a woman armed herself with a knife and then lured a drunk into Telopea Park where she stabbed him to death (in the back) in a particularly brutal fashion and then got off scot-free by claiming “he raped me”.

I guess you’re referring to the woman who was recently found not guilty of murder by a judge and jury who had all the facts (and not a garbled version of half-remembered news reports):

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-02-28/woman-acquitted-of-chefs-murder/1960346

I think I take their version of events more seriously than yours, mate!

You mean you will take a questionable version as the truth? The controvertial decision made by Justice Higgins so this “hard done by” individual can be back on our streets was the final straw for me. He needs to be retired as he is becoming known as “Good old Uncle Terry” to some of these shits.

Personally i hope she gets what coming to her and she gets hit by a truck or worse as she played the rape card when it was obvious that there was more going on than what she admitted and there was some premeditation on her part, why carry the knives? She killed someone and got off scott free by claiming just about everything that she could.

Secondly, this is off the track as it is a completely different case.

There is one scheme becoming more and more popular […] He refused to pay, she then threatens to report him for rape.

Any evidence that this “scheme” is “becoming more and more popular”? A study, a news item, anything? Or is it just more baseless gossip passed around to help discredit women who report rape?

LOL
No one here knows the full story, you seem to believe that guy is guilty, I, on another hand, do not think either of them is guilty, as we do not know all the facts. Both innocent.
You don’t think that detectives will be investigating only two leads, based on ” he said/she said”?

This is typical of a man-hater feminist behaviour to jump with a phrase about attempts to discredit women by men.
🙂
My theory is that he is gay, just wanted to try a woman, and proved himself wrong.
Canberra…. hom

It is a disgraceful troll

You know, I don’t think so! There are so many men (and women!) who buy into myths about rape. That’s not surprising when those myths get repeated over and over again, whether in the news or in a forum like this! That’s why it’s so important to challenge the myth that women frequently go to the police with made up rape stories. There’s just no evidence that this happens often, let alone increasingly.

Of course not. It is a disgraceful troll, that someone thinks it okay to make such stupid comments about an alleged rape, actually sickens me.
