Police want to speak to this handsome face about an alleged sexual assault

ugly is as ugly does

ACT Policing has released the facefit image of a suspect from an alleged historical sexual assault in December 2012.

Between 1.30 and 2am on Friday 21 December, the victim was in the City interchange waiting for a taxi when she was approached and propositioned by the alleged offender. The victim refused, and entered a yellow ‘maxi-cab’ style taxi. The offender also entered the taxi. During the trip to the victim’s address in Bruce, the offender sexually assaulted the victim, which continued in the front yard of the victim’s address when the two got out of the taxi.

The matter was reported to police on 10 January 2014.

The offender is described as being of Caucasian descent, with a strong Irish accent. He is between 170-180cm (5’7”-5’11”) tall with a slim build.

He has receding, very short, mousy-brown coloured hair. At the time of the incident he is believed to have been residing in Kaleen.

Police are urging anyone who recognises the man pictured, or has information in relation to the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 00 or via www.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously. Police are also hoping to speak to the taxi driver who conveyed the alleged offender and victim to Bruce.

yeah, um, inferring someone is, or bears resemblance to, a rapist, isn’t witty. It just makes you an a-hole.

This story is just a touch concerning. If she can’t remember the colour of the taxi, is it possible she can’t remember what the attacker looked like? Canberra has no yellow taxis let alone any yellow maxi taxis. Perhaps she was in a different city?

There actually is one that is half yellow with some sort of advertising that it is special.

Very odd wonder how they worked out he resides in Kaleen I hardly think if you were going to perform a sexual assault you would tell the victim what suburb you live in.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an arrest in this case but I doubt it will be the “man” in the photofit who gets arrested. .

Yeah, closest I recall seeing are these (http://www.thebrashaustralian.com/images/bladeoz/FORD/Falcon-Taxi.jpg) in that sort of Splice yellow-green colour and only in sedans.

Several ways this doesn’t add up. Even if the story is true, highly doubt there’ll be any reasonable prospect of conviction unless in taxi footage still exists and is conclusive.

And the taxi driver did nothing?????

Exactly what I was wondering… Are they that concerned about getting their fare that they completely ignore what’s going on behind them?

gooterz 5:39 pm 22 Jan 14

Plus the chance of a conviction is shite

gooterz 5:38 pm 22 Jan 14

Sounds like someone got pregnant and needed a cover story?

maxblues 5:23 pm 22 Jan 14

Such a detailed facefit image but such a vague height.
