Two men have been arrested after a 14-year-old girl was raped twice in one night by separate attackers.

Detectives said the teenager’s “horrifying ordeal” began when she was first attacked in a secluded part of Birmingham’s Witton railway station, near the Aston Villa football ground, between 8pm on Tuesday and 2am the following morning.

Shortly afterwards, the girl flagged down a passing vehicle for help – but was raped a second time after getting into the car.

Police said the arrests of two men, aged 35 and 27, on suspicion of rape on Saturday morning both relate to the first attack. The pair are in police custody.

Detectives are still searching for another man, who is described as about 5ft 6in, thick set and with large biceps, in connection with the second rape.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick, from British Transport Police, said: “Our investigation into the second incident in the vehicle continues at a pace.

“The young victim was raped for a second time in a vehicle close to Witton station at approximately 2am.

“I am still looking to hear from anyone who lives locally to Witton and saw a young girl walking by herself during the early hours of Wednesday morning.

“If you saw any vehicle or any person acting suspiciously then please get in touch as soon as possible.”

Anyone with any information can text 61016, call 0800 40 50 40, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
