Woman raped after black cab sex attack in Manchester

Left: The attacker is described as Asian and of stocky build.

Another disgusting attack from an enricher.

Girls who get drunk and flag down taxis are in terrible danger around Christmas.

The BBC reports - Police have issued an e-fit of a taxi driver who is accused of sexually assaulting a woman who managed to escape from his vehicle but was later attacked and raped.

The 25-year-old victim flagged down a black cab on Shudehill on Saturday at 0100 GMT.

Police said the driver drove her to Ash Street, Harpurhey, where he locked her in the taxi and attacked her.

She managed to escape but police say she was later attacked and raped.

The second attack took place not far from the junction of Ash Street and Cyprus Street.
'Festive period'

Det Insp Nick Hughes, said: "The victim was subjected to an awful sexual assault by a man she had trusted to take her home.

"I want to reassure the community we believe this is an isolated incident and are working closely with the taxi licensing officers.

"There is no reason why this incident should deter people from going out over the festive period and I would reiterate that getting a pre-booked licensed taxi home after a night out is one of the best ways to keep safe."

Detectives have released an e-fit of the attacker, who is described as Asian, aged between 30 and 40 years old, of stocky build with short black hair and stubble.

Its happened again - this time in Bromsgrove.

Why anyone gets into a cab driven by an Asian I really do not know...

Todmorton - thanks for this, heard it on the radio this morning and said to my friend "wonder if it was a Muslim"?

So we don't know if the 'Asian' was a Muslim by the article, what's the odds it is?

I wouldn't let a woman from my family get in a taxi with one of these perverts.

Its odds on to be a muslim.

What freaks me out is the ongoing stupidity of people, esp. women, who step into their cabs. Putting aside the risks of assault it is well known that they have dodgy insurance, MOTS and often loan out their (dodgy?) drivers licences.

Have you noticed how nearly all the black cabs in Brum are driven by asians?

How did that happen I wonder?

If people just refused to get in they would go bust in double quick time.
