Teen girl raped twice in one night near UK train station

A 14-year-old girl was raped twice in one night, once at a Birmingham, England, train station late Tuesday and again after the teen said she flagged down a car for help, according to British authorities.

Cops on Saturday nabbed two men accused in the first sex attack at the Witton station hours after sharing photos of the track suit-wearing suspects from surveillance footage.

Both men, ages 27 and 37, are accused of raping the teen, British Transport Police said in a news release. The suspects were not identified.

The Guardian reports that the girl was at the station with a friend when one of the men lured her to a secluded area and raped her.

Detective Chief Tony Fitzpatrick described the consecutive attacks as a “horrifying ordeal for this young girl.”

Fitzpatrick asked witnesses to step forward if they saw the girl walking alone at the train station or saw a man or vehicle “acting suspiciously.”

Police described the third alleged rapist as a “thick set man” wtih large biceps.
