Victoria Police says Melbourne rape suspects have fled to IndiaOctober 22nd, 2010 - 1:18 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Oct. 22 (ANI): Victoria Police on Friday confirmed that two men they want to question over a vicious rape that took place in Melbourne earlier this month have fled to India last Sunday.
“Police will liaise with Indian authorities in relation to the investigation,” The Age quoted a police spokeswoman, as saying.
Sexual crimes squad detectives were told a man forced a 36-year-old woman into a silver car containing another man on Dandenong Road in Oakleigh, in Melbourne’s southeast, between 4 and 5 a.m. (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) on October 3.
Police said that the victim was driven to a location where she was physically and sexually assaulted before she passed out. She later found herself partially clothed and bleeding on North Road.
Police released security video footage of one of the men allegedly involved in the attack visiting a petrol station. The car’s bonnet, which bore a distinctive pattern, was later found abandoned.
Detective Acting Sergeant Sean Martin said the attack was vicious in the sense that the woman was punched in the face and eye, suffering an abrasion, bruising and bleeding as well as being sexually assaulted. (ANI)
