Queensland Police have relaunched an investigation into the vicious sexual assault of a woman in Brisbane’s West End five years ago.
The 20-year-old victim was walking to a bus stop at 11:30pm on April 15, 2011 when she was forced into an alleyway and assaulted, suffering severe internal and external injuries.
At the time Inspector Rod Kemp said the woman was ‘aggressively raped in the worst way I have seen in my service’ and that ‘animals don't do that to each other'.
Descriptions of the suspects, CCTV footage and a video re-enactment were widely circulated but the attackers have never been found and police warned they could strike again.
The police have launched a review of the unsolved case with detectives from the sex crime unit, and they are appealing to the public for fresh information.
Detective Inspector Garry Watts said, ‘Our objective with this review is to bring the unique investigative skill of officers from the Sex Crimes Unit together with the investigative team to hopefully bring about a successful result to this case.’
‘I think someone knows something and I certainly appeal, if you know something about this incident, please contact the police.’
