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.

Some of you seem to live very sheltered, judgemental, sexist lives.

Amazing, one can only contemplate that the woman in this case is the victim, and the male the perpetrator, or one is being sexist.

Isn’t that… errrmmmm…. very sexist.

Not being sexist. Being judgmental and making inflammatory comments about an incident you know nothing about.

Unless your outrage at how this particular man feels at seeing a photofit image of his face on a website is somehow fuelled by inside knowledge.

Saying that this scum deserves to die and, oh my god the poor lass is also judgemental and inflammatory. Yet such comments would appear all over the internet. Don’t come back until you’ve attacked them all.

Or are we only allowed to judge when its against a man? In that case proceed with your sexism

Who is saying he deserves to die? You’ve clearly made up your mind that because it took a year for this case to come to light that the woman is lying and the unnamed man is completely innocent.

No-one is accusing you of being sexist for your defence of a man who may be entirely innocent. But your rush to accuse the woman of being a liar, seeking to cover up consensual sex now that (in your mind) she is pregnant, looks very suspicious. Either you are trolling or you know more about this case than you want to let on.

Its quite common for this to happen with army guys when they go overseas on tour. Wife cheats and gets pregnant, husband returns and she tells him that its his. Takes him a few months after the kid is born to realise and then questions her. Not wanting to lose the guy she tells him that she was raped.
Then husband forces the girl to report it to the cops so she does and makes up a story.
its a story that goes back at least 2000 years.

It makes a hella lot more sense than yellow taxi’s and cab drivers that did nothing and then waiting 13 months to do the photo fit.

Well that’s it then. Case settled. Great work Detective Gooterz.

Here’s an alternative scenario.

Woman is out at night. Gets pestered by a bloke in the taxi queue. Has no desire to have sex with him but allows him to share a cab because she is a nice person. Cabbie presumes they are together. He is touching her in places and ways she does not consent to, but she does not yell out or scream because these situations are quite frightening and unexpected. After all most men don’t do this kind of shit.

She thinks, if I can get home, I’ll be safe and no-one needs to know this happened. Because it is humiliating.

It takes her two weeks, two months, a year to report it. And why? Maybe because she has stayed home ever since because she thinks in some way it was her fault, or because she’s too scared to go out again. But it’s Christmas party time, and she goes out, and sees him, or someone just like him, and she has flashbacks and suddenly has the courage to do something.

But no, Detective Gooterz is right. Clearly the only case to be made here is that she is the cheating whore of a national hero.

Yeah, sexist. These comments stink of sexism. The courts will decide if someone is guilty or otherwise, not the internet. .

Right. This would be the same courts that recently allowed the Telopea-Park-Stabber to get off scot free after a frenzied attack on somebody on account of her being female?

Yeah, sexist. These comments stink of sexism. The courts will decide if someone is guilty or otherwise, not the internet. Right now the police have just released a photofit. Get on with your lives.
