Police are looking for a suspect after a 15-year-old girl was raped on a Bournemouth beach.
After a 15-year-old girl was allegedly raped on a crowded Bournemouth beach, Dorset Police have published an e-fit of a teenager they want to interrogate.
The alleged incident began about 3.30 p.m. on July 18, when the heat drew hundreds of people to the beach.
The suspect was characterized as being between 5’7″ and 5’7″ tall and “probably of Pakistani ancestry” by officers.
His hair was short and spikey, and he had a prominent line cut across his left brow.
He informed the victim he was 17 and had traveled to Bournemouth from Birmingham, according to police.
While the girl and her companions were playing with a ball near the Bournemouth Oceanarium, the tragedy occurred.
This dropped in front of the suspect, who tossed it away and began conversing with the victim.
He then allegedly dragged her into deeper water and raped her, according to her.
“The perpetrator told the victim that he was 17 years old and was traveling to Birmingham,” Dorset Police said in a statement.
“The male is thought to be from Birmingham as well.
“He is described as being of Pakistani descent, with tanned skin, a lean but muscular physique, and short dark hair that was pushed back and seemed recently trimmed, standing between five and five and a half feet tall and between five and five and a half inches tall.
“He was wearing black or grey swimming shorts.” Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team has launched an investigation, with expert officers assisting the victim.
Working on the case, Detective Inspector Wayne Seymour urged anyone with information to come forward.
“As part of our inquiry, we gathered forensic evidence, which means we will be able to rule out anyone who was not participating in our investigations,” he stated.
“On the day of the event, we received a number of reports of young Asian guys approaching female beachgoers, some of whom may have exchanged Snapchat messages.
“I would encourage anyone who exchanged Snapchat conversations with someone who approached them on the beach that day to contact us so that we can further investigate.
“In addition, I’d like to reiterate our appeal to anyone who was on the beach near the Oceanarium on July 18 to review any photographs or video footage they may have taken to see if they captured anything of significance.” Britain was sweltering in a heatwave on July 18, with temperatures reaching 29 degrees Celsius. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
