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….

Umm? Alleged sexual assault can be alleged sexual assault even if the victim once (allegedly) held their attackers hand or allowed them to touch them. I’m pretty sure you know this, maybe just have a quick re-think.

It doesnt add up to what she said was the reason he came in.

Also for the record.. there is no mention of rape either. Sexual assult could be as little as getting the wrong message and touching her.

All we know is that a lady presumeably under the influence of alcohol and alone walking though some of the worst parts of canberra, meets a guy and escorts him back to her apparent at 3am -4am on saturday.

Then it gets reported to the public 36 hours later.

I just wouldnt rule out the possibility of her thinking ah.. maybe i shouldn’t have done that on the saturday morning/afternoon.

DUUUUUDE, just stop. you’re saying all the wrong things.

I don’t know what it’s meant to say – but the fuzziness makes it look like Rapen

That says more about you (all bad) than him.

So that is an unwavering sign of consent is it?

Such a clear photo.. why isnt there some automatic face detection..

Everyone has to use an ATM at some point!

People get upset enough over number plate recognition, can you imagine how much they would get upset over facial recognition?

Wife and I walk down Mort quite often when going home in Turner… will definitely be keeping an eye out for this scumbag and making sure the Mrs is extra vigilant!

On top of the foul nature of this crime there’s an attack on society in general here.

Crimes like this make people less likely to help each other in distress.
